Play Ball... 

llO matter what your speed or 
skill may be in sports, you have 
to "play ball" or you are 
definitely "out". 

And you will be out of the posi- 
tion your abilities warrant in 
life if you do not "play ball" in 
your personal affairs. One important rule is to spend 
wisely and save regularly. You cannot start to observe 
that rule too early in life.

see hov/ quickly small savings grow.

Junior School Record: Mr. R. Yates. 
Editorial Adviser and Manager: Mr. D. Kermode Parr 

The Record is published six times a year, in the months of 
October, December, February, April, June, and August. 


In this first number of Volume Forty-one of the 
Record, mention must certainly be made of the increase in 
numbers that has taken place in both Schools this year. 
More new boys have entered this term than at any one time 
in the previous 72 years' history of the School. The Senior 
School is nearly full and the Junior School numbers are al- 
most doubled. This strikes a very encouraging note for 
the year before us. We take this opportimity of welcoming 
the new boys and saying good-bye to all who have left. 

The late beginning of the term gives us the feeling that 
colder days are upon us remarkably early. There is even 
a rumour abroad that a supply of snowshoes has been 
ordered, as the football team are expected to need them 
before their season ends this term. 

There is vague (?) talk about making up work-time 
lost through the postponement of opening this Fall. Our 
mathematics master assures us that we ought to be doing 
algebra day and night, our English instructor insists on 
English night and day, mentors in history and science each 
claim the twenty-fifth hour of each day and there are 


gentle hints that other subjects have a need of extra time. 
However, there always has been, and always will be, plenty 
of work to do, and no doubt we shall get around to doing 
some of it almost any week now. 

Let us close with a warm welcome to Mr. Wilson and 
Mr. Tottenham and heartiest wishes for every happiness to 
Mr. and Mrs. Davidson. 

The School offers sincerest congratulations to the 
Headmaster and Mrs. Ketchum on the birth of their son. 

— C.O.L. 


There is a beauty at the end of life; 

The old man smiles, as with his dying breath 

He sighs, and from a mad world's strife. 

At peace, his spirit wanders after death; 

Whilst those bereft may find within their sorrow 

A beauty that we seldom understand; 

For midst their tears they know that on the morrow 

They too will pass unto a fairer land, 

A place where perfect happiness abounds. 

And youth again returns. There silence deep, | 

In gardens where a glorious sunlight crowns ' 

The flowers, all lost in drowsy sleep. 

Oh God! How many men have striven 

To find on earth the wonders of Thy heaven. 

— J.S.H. 


The Chapel 

The New Organ 

The Chapel services have been greatly enriched by the 
organ this term. This fine instrument is the gift of Mr. 
Norman Seagram, so well known to us as Old Boy and a 
Governor of T.C.S. 

It is an Electric Wave organ, designed and constructed 
by the Robb Organ Company of Belleville, Ontario. The 
console is situated in the body of the Chapel, but the music 
heard is transmitted by a cable from motor mechanism in 
the Vestry to amplifiers placed overhead in the Sanctuary. 

This is truly a wonderful gift and we feel deeply grate- 
ful to Mr. Seagram. 

The Choir 

The choir has increased in numbers considerably, 
forty-three choristers being the present total. In Mr. 
Cohu's capable hands, they are already doing good work 
and the Chapel singing should be better than ever this 

Sunday Sermons 

October 10th. The Chaplain preached the first sermon 
of the year, his subject being Harvest and Thanksgiving. 

October. 19th. The Headmaster spoke on the differ- 
ence between the man who ploughs his fields in unceasing 
straight furrows and the man who, because he strikes roots 
and stones, gives up and therefore leads a shiftless life. 

October 24th. At the morning service the Head- 
master gave a short address on service in the cause of 
peace. This address is printed below. 

In the afternoon, the sermon was preached by the 
Reverend S. Boothman, of Enniskillen, Ireland. His topic 
was the Parable of the Talents. 


Memorial Service at St. Mark's 

On Sunday morning, October 24th., a service was held 
at St. Mark's Church, Port Hope, in which gifts to the 
church were dedicated in memory of the Rev. Oswald 
Rigby, M.A., LLD., rector from 1918 until he died in 1933. 
The Provost of Trinity College preached and mentioned 
how the blessings of life have come to us through the lives 
and accomplishments of good men. The Prefects and 
Seniors attended the service. Dr. Rigby was Headmaster 
of T.C.S. from 1903 until 1913 and very many Old Boys 
remember him with gratitude. We are hoping that before 
long we may have a painting of Dr. Rigby hanging in the 

The Headmaster's Address, 24th October, 1937 

Last Friday I had the great privilege of attending a 
special convocation at the University of Toronto at which 
the Hon. Cordell Hull, Secretary of State of the United 
States of America, and ranking member of Mr. Roose- 
velt's cabinet, was given the degree of Doctor of Laws, 
honoris causa, as a tribute of respect to a great man and 
through him a tribute of respect to a great people. 

Seated beside Mr. Hull were the Governor General of 
Canada, representing the King, the Lieutenant Governor of 
Ontario, the Prime Minister of Canada, the American Min- 
ister to Canada and many other notable citizens. 

It was pre-eminently an occasion of good neighbour- 
liness between two important countries, and the speeches 
stressed that one beam of hope in a troubled world, the 
fact that two such peoples have lived, are living, and God 
grant will continue to live in complete harmony and mutual 
respect and affection, all differences being settled by 

The Prime Minister of Canada, in his address, discuss- 
ed war and peace, and the difficulties of eradicating the one 
and strengthening the other. He made an observation 
which I should like to quote: 


"Some twenty years ago, in a study in the principles 
underlying industrial reconstruction I sought to show the 
practical bearing of the principles of the Prince of Peace on 
industrial relations. They are principles which have be- 
come familiar in the settlement of industrial strife. We 
would do well to recognize how equally applicable they are 
to international strife. 

What Jesus left the world of His method of the 
settlement of controversy and removal of injustice is 
simply told in three consecutive sentences as recorded in 
the 18th Chapter of the Gospel according to St. Matthew: 
V. 15, 'If thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and 
tell him his fault between thee and him alone; if he hear 
thee thou hast gained thy brother.' 

That is the method of conciliation and mediation. 

V. 16. But if he will not hear thee, then take with 
thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three 
witnesses every word may be established. 

That is the method of investigation and arbitration. 

V. 17. And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it 
unto the church; but if he neglect to hear the church, let 
him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican. 

The church was the little community of those of that 
day who professed the principles of the Prince of Peace. 
The principle here set forth is that of the method of 
reliance upon an informed public opinion, and in our day 
upon the moral power of the much larger Christian com- 
munities and countries, to find the necessary means of re- 
dress where a wrong is done their sense of justice". 

Mr. Hull, in his address, spoke of the necessity for 
order, order based on moral law, between persons and be- 
tween groups of persons. And he was careful to point out 
that this moral law must begin with the individual man. 
by his learning an inner discipline. Without such discipline, 
without such order based on law, our destinies could not 
be fulfilled. Our freedom would disappear, we could not 


achieve the best that is in us. He stressed too, the need 
for self -discipline among nations as among men, in opposi- 
tion to discipline imposed from without by force. He said 
that his country and the British Conmionwealth of Nations 
had the same ideal, peace based on order and law. 

It was an historic occasion, one which we hope will give 
evidence to the world at large that great nations still be- 
lieve in the principles of the Christian religion, love as 
opposed to hate, understanding as opposed to suspicion, 
mediation as opposed to force. 

President Roosevelt spoke strongly on the same theme 
only a short time ago, and said that the world needed to 
remember the principles of the Prince of Peace. Mr. Hull 
and Mr. Mackenzie King spoke in similar vein, and each 
based his hope for the future on the individual's innate 
love of fair dealing, on the golden rule. They saw untold 
danger ahead if the individual became apathetic to public 
questions or hardened and cynical to wrong doing. A 
nation's will and influence is made up of each individual's 
will and influence, and each one of us must determine the 
way for himself and for others. 

There can be few more noble ideals than to prepare to 
bring comfort to this world of travail through giving our- 
selves in service to our fellow men, strengthening the cause 
of friendship and understanding among the nations. 

Canada and the United States are examples of good 
neighbourliness to the world; let us so fashion ourselves 
that we may zealously guard this glorious heritage and 
be prepared to promote a similar goodwill among all 

Since the installation of the organ, the Sunday morn- 
ing services are sung again, and it is hoped soon to make 
the Communion services fully choral.

School News 

New Members of the Governing Body 

The School offers its most sincere congratulations to 
Col. H. C. Osborne, Mr. Hugh Labatt, and Mr. B. M. Osier 
on being elected to the Governing Body; they have been 
most loyal and generous sons of the School, and we are 
exceedingly fortunate in having their assistance in the 
guiding of our destinies. 

Col. Osborne was born on October 10th., 1874. in 
Brantford, a son of the late J. K. Osborne. He entered 
T.C.S. on September 20th., 1888 and left for Trinity College, 
Toronto, in July, 1892. While he was at T.C.S. he took a 
leading part in the life of the School, being on the football 
team in 1891 and a School prefect. He is now chairman 
of the Canadian Agency of the Imperial War Graves Com- 
mission in Ottawa, and for many years he has been one of 
that city's most active and distinguished citizens. His 
name is probably most widely known because of the part 
he has played in the little theatre movement of Canada. 
He is chairman of the drama festival committee and in 
that capacity he has been chiefly responsible for the extra- 
ordinary success and enthusiasm shown in the movement 
throughout Canada. He has gained a reputation of being 
Canada's best after dinner speaker, and those who heard 
him speak at the Old Boys' Dinner last year can quite 
understand the reason for that reputation. In many other 
ways he has taken a prominent part in the life of his city 
and country, and brought honour to his old School. 

Mr. Hugh Labatt was born in London, Ontario, on 
October 10th., 1883, the son of John Labatt. He entered 
T.C.S. on September 14th., 1898 and very soon made a 
reputation for himself as an exceptionally skilful athlete. 
He was captain of the football team playing quarter-back 
and half, and he was a brilliant performer on both the 
hockey and cricket teams. 


After leaving T.C.S. in 1900 he went into business and 
soon rose to be one of the leading officials of his firm, John 
Labatt and Co. He has always taken a most generous 
interest in the affairs of his city, and of his School, and we 
are proud to have him on our governing body. 

B. M. Osier was bom in Toronto on June 10th., 1910, 
the eldest son of Britton Osier, K.C. He entered T.C.S. 
on September 14th., 1920 and left for R.M.C. in 1926. While 
he was at T.C.S., Brick won the admiration and respect of 
all for his honesty of purpose, good judgment, and con- 
sistent steadiness under all conditions. After a most suc- 
cessful career at R.M.C, he entered Osgoode Hall and is 
now a member of his father's firm. Osier, Hoskin and Har- 
court. Though still young, Brick is rapidly making an 
important place for himself, and we shall watch his career 
with much interest. 

The Staff 

Mrs. £. M. Davidson 
Mrs. Davidson has been added to the J. S. Staff as 
Lady Assistant. A double greeting is hers, as we have 
elsewhere offered our good wishes on her marriage, which 
has made her a very welcome new member of the T.C.S. 

Mr. Wilson 

We offer a very hearty welcome to Mr. Wilson, who 
has joined the Staff of the Senior School this teiTn. 

Mr. Wilson is a product of King's College School at 
Windsor, Nova Scotia. From K.C.S. he went to Dart- 
mouth College, New Hampshire, graduating in 1934. Last 
year he was at McGill. In between spells at college, Mr. 
Wilson has had three years newspaper work in the Mari- 
times. He is keenly interested in dramatic work, and we 
hope to see his experience given scope in T.C.S. play pro- 


Mr. Tottenham 

A very warm welcome is extended to Mr. Tottenham, 
a new figure on the Junior School Staff. Mr. Tottenham 
attended Geneva College in Switzerland and graduated 
from Queen's University, Kingston. For two years he was 
French Interpreter with the Dominion Life Insurance Com- 
pany and last year accepted a temporary appointment as 
Instructor in French and English at R.M.C. 

We hope he will enjoy his new sphere in the J.S. 

Mr. Armstrong 

D. H. Armstrong has returned to the School this year 
as Assistant Physical Training Instructor. The additional 
enrolment has made Mr. Batt's duties more than one man 
could possibly encompass. The new Dominion Junior 
Gymnastic Champion will be of invaluable assistance to 
new boys and others aspiring to gymnastic distinction. We 
welcome him back as Mr. Armstrong. 


Owing to the prevalence of poliomyelitis, the schools 
in Ontario were some three or four weeks late in opening 
this year. We were one of the first to open when we got 
the whole School together on the sixth of October. Boys 
who had been in any danger of contact with the disease 
were put under observation in quarantine for nearly two 

So far luck has been with us, as we hope it will con- 
tine to be with Dr. Vivian's wise precautions.

During the latter part of September and the beginning 
of October, when School opening was postponed because of 
the poliomyelitis epidemic, the work of the McGill form was 
started in Montreal. A classroom was secured in the 
Y.M.C.A. building, and the boys concerned gathered there 


for a short session each morning. Mr. Scott. Mr. Davidson, 
Dr. Glover, Mr. Humble and Mr. Dixon were there for vary- 
ing periods to take classes and offer tutorial advice. Much 
loss of time was thus avoided in the work of the matricula- 
tion course. 

Strathcona Silver Medal 

W. Mood was presented at the beginning of term with 
the Strathcona Silver Medal, awarded for the highest score 
in the School in the annual course of musketry, 1936-37. 
We congratulate him on his fine shooting. 

Championship Shooting 

In a special shoot-off for the Dominion of Canada 
Junior Championship, T.C.S. obtained fourth place, putting 
in a score of 899 out of a possible 1000. 


Football practice is in full swing, but no matches have 
been played at the date of going to press. Reports of all 
games will appear in our next number. 

Gift of a Painting 

Miss Mabel Cartwright, of Toronto, has given the 
School a most attractive portrait which is now hanging 
in the Chapel. It was painted by Miss Sydney Tully, a 
Canadian, in Paris about the year 1890. Miss Tully's 
father was the architect of the old Trinity College, on 
Queen Street, W. She became a most gifted artist and 
had at least one picture in the Paris salon. She died about 
the year 1914. The work which has been given to the 
School is a most striking treatment of a figure full of 
determination and strength of character. The subject is 


unknown, but it is suggested that it might have been 

We are most grateful to Miss Cartwright for her 
thoughtfulness and kindness. 

Invitation Squash Trophy 

Two anonymous Old Boy donors have presented to 
the School a very fine Challenge Trophy for our Invitation 
Squash Rackets Tournament. It has been given as a 
tribute to Argue Martin, himself an Old Boy, and all he 
has done to encourage the game of squash in this country. 
In this connection it is interesting to note that the winner 
for the last two years has been another Old Boy, and a 
Martin: Harold Martin, who is a cousin of Argue's. Those 
who saw the Tournament last year or the year before will 
not soon forget the titanic struggle between Harold and 
Hubert Martin for possession of the trophy. We are look- 
ing forward to another successful tournament this year, 
and we know that our visitors will be most impressed by 
the new Challenge Trophy. The most striking feature of 
the Trophy is a column surmounted by an athletic 
champion with arms upraised. At the base are three 
figures with squash rackets; the whole is executed in 
copper standing on a mahogany base. Already it has 
excited much admiration from the School, and we are most 
indebted to the kind donors for their interest and gen- 

The Library 

The library is in the process of complete re-organiza- 
tion. Mr. Maier, assisted by Miss White and the librarians, 
is at present engaged in cataloguing and marking all the 
books on the Dewey Decimal system. It is rather a 
stupendous task, and we are fortunate in having such 
experienced and qualified people as Mr. Maier and Miss 


White to undertake it. When this work is completed and 
we are able to see clearly where the most noticeable gaps 
are, then we hope to be abe to fill some of the empty spaces 
by purchasing a number of new books. 

All this is being done both for our present needs and 
as a preparation for that expansion which will take place 
when the new Chapel is built and we are able to use the 
present Chapel as a Library and Reading Room. 

In the meantime we are sorely in need of funds, and 
we are hoping that some of our friends who are interested 
in good reading will contribute towards a Library fund 
which will enable us to carry on and develop this important 
work. Already $100.00 has been offered if others con- 
tribute. Donations will most thankfully be received by 
the Headmaster. 

The McLaren Family 

W. F. McLaren, whose death we are very sorry to 
record, was the eldest of six brothers who all attended the 
School. Their father was Col. Henry McLaren of Hamilton, 
and several of their sons have also been at the School, in- 
cluding Fred McLaren, now at R.M.C, a Prefect last year. 
No other family of six brothers has, we believe, attended 
the School, though there have been several cases of five 
brothers in attendance. 

The Carnegie Room 
Room "G", now to be known as the Carnegie Room, 
no longer looks like a classroom. Cabinets have been 
built for the twenty files of pictures (some 800), and book- 
cases for the books (300), so that the magnificent gifts of 
the Carnegie Corporation will be satisfactorily housed. In 
addition a large round table has been constructed, seat- 
ing eighteen people, and it is hoped that we shall have 
curtains for the windows and blackboard before long. All 
the woodwork is of white pine and finished in the natural 


colour. The room will now be used for English and History 
classes but especially as an additional reading and reference 
room. The Ladies Guild is most generously contributing 
this work to us and we are exceedingly grateful to them. 

Lionger Classes 

Some of the classes this year are of twice the ordinary 
length, an hour and a half instead of three quarters of an 
hour. The expectation is that teaching, discussion, and 
study will be able to be combined more effectively. It is 
an experiment, the outcome of which is stUl uncertain. 

Dormitory Cubicles 

A dormitory in each house has been divided into six 
alcove rooms by partitions, giving the inhabitants more 
privacy than is possible otherwise. The innovation seems 
to be working out well. 

Little Big 4 Cross Country Race 

It has been suggested that there should be a "Little 
Big 4" Cross Country race this year. So far nothing 
definite has been arranged, but it is said that the race may 
be run about November 13th., and that it will be over a 
course equivalent to the Oxford Cup distance. 

BUliard Room Seat 

A comfortable bench has been built into the bay 
window of the billiard room by Mr. Scott. The seat is on 
a dais, to give a good view of the play, and extends the 
whole width of the window, with two dividing arms. On 
its cushions at least nine people can watch a game at ease. 
This excellent piece of work is one more example of the 
craftmanship with which Mr. Scott is constantly enriching 
the School. 



I woke upon a grassy hill 
And watched the light mists roll away, 
The sun appeared, all earth seemed still. 
Silent I saw the break of day. 
I rose and wandered o'er the downs, 
My steps were paved with morning dew; 
A place, where peace all sorrow drowns, 
I climbed the heights and saw the view. 
A county lay before my eyes. 
And then I thought and understood 
The glorious beauty that there lies 
Within the fields, how every wood 
Holds more, much more than any town 
Or man-made city ever could. 



Inv^itation Squash Rackets Tournament. 




Largely owing to the success of the Canadian Schools 
Cricket tour of two years ago, another tour was arranged 
last summer and early in July a team sailed to engage not 
only schools in England but also in Scotland. The team 
was not perhaps as representative of Canadian Schools as 
might have been wished, only Upper Canada College 
and T.C.S. being included; however, they did reasonably 
well. The four players from T.C.S. were W. Mood, J. S. 
Hayes, J. Peacock and C. R. Osier. The master in charge 
was Mr. Dewer from Appleby College. 

Landing on July 9th, after a fairly calm voyage, the 
team was cordially received by the mayor of Southampton, 
who wished the eleven good luck and welcomed them to 
England. After a little trouble with the baggage, the 
English system of checking being hard to "catch on" to, 
the party set off for Cambridge via London. The weather 
upon arrival had certainly stood up to tradition, the sky 
was overcast and a heavy rain was falling. However, when 
Cambridge was reached and the team had been transfered 
to their quarters in Trinity Hall, the v/eather cleared up 
and a pleasant evening was spent seeing the sights. During 
the next few days the team practised in the nets on the 
Leys School campus, and on Sunday they attended service 
at the historic King's College Chapel. 

The first game against Leys School was the most 
exciting match that the team played during the tour. The 
Leysians batted first and made the formidable score of 167 
for 5 declared, leaving the Canadian Schools two hours and 
a half to bat. A hundred was soon reached chiefly owing 
to the efforts of the captain, Gunn, but when the hundred 
and fifty mark had been passed there seemed to be a lull 
in the scoring. The last over was called and the Leysians 
score was equalled, but the fifth ball carried away the bails. 
A hundred and sixty-seven all, and the last ball of the 
game. The next batsman faced the bowling, took a mighty 


swdng and missed, but so did the wicket keeper and the 
ball went for two byes. Now who said there were no 
thrills in cricket? 

From Cambridge the team travelled by the Flying 
Scotsman to Edinburgh where they stayed at Merchiston 
Castle School. Here Mood was very impressed when he 
learnt that the junior and senior boys went about in shorts 
all the year round. No doubt he was thinking of the 
Canadian winter. 

While in Scotland the team saw several places of his- 
toric interest. Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace 
were visited during the stay in the capital, and on a trip 
to Linlithgow the castle bearing that name was seen, as 
well as the old town hall and chapel. The team found this 
latter castle so interesting that a number wandered off 
from the group and got lost. Peacock became very en- 
grossed in exploring the dungeons, and when the guide 
pointed out a dark hole where prisoners used to be thrown, 
he disappeared for so long that his friends thought some- 
thing had happened to him. At length, however, his head 
emerged from an unexpected cavity and he unfolded some 
startling information about secret passages underneath the 

Sir Robert and Lady Gilmour invited the team to tea 
at their country estate just outside Edinburgh and gave the 
party a verj^ entertaining afternoon showing them over the 
gardens and another castle which had belonged to Sir 
Robert's ancestors. When the time came to leave the team 
took a very sad farewell of Edinburgh, which will certainly 
hold many memories for them for a long time to come. 

From Scotland the team went by train to York where 
they played St. Peter's School and from there to Worksop. 
The match at Worksop was rather disappointing from a 
batting point of view though the bowling was quite good. 
Worksop College having been dismissed for 89, the lowest 
score they had made that season, the team were in high 
hopes of obtaining an easy victory. But pride comes be- 


fore a fall and the whole Canadian side were out for a 
meagre 29. 

After playing Ampleforth College the players left the 
north and journeyed to Rye in the south of England. Here 
they were met by Major Ney and spent an enjoyable even- 
ing attending the annual fete and Rye Grammar School 
dance. While staying at Rye the team saw the old church 
standing since the days of the Norman invasion, the tovm 
hall and many interesting historic relics. Major Ney gave 
a dinner for the cricketers though he himself was un- 
fortunately unable to attend. Another dinner was also 
given for the players by G. T. Jennings, an old boy of T.C.S. 

After the Rye match, the team left for Eastbourne 
arriving there during Bank Holiday week. As thej^ had 
free passes for the bathing tents, the players spent most of 
their time on the beach, and so apparently did everyone 
else in England. However, they managed to find space to 
sit and room to swim. During their stay there, they 
availed themselves of the opportunity of seeing several first 
class county matches. 

From Eastbourne the team went to London where they 
stayed for a few days before sailing home on August 17th. 

One thing that struck all of the players was the great 
hospitality which was shown them everywhere they went. 
Staying at various Schools they got a very interesting in- 
sight into English school life. No doubt some of them 
were able to contrast Ian Hay's comedy, "The House- 
master", with their own experiences, and I am on sure 
ground when I say (with no hard feelings) that they all 
agree with Mr. Lewis's views on the food in English

The return of Professor Cy Entific to the "Record" 
staff has created quite a furore in scientific journals 
throughout the country. One even went so far as to say 
that if the Record hadn't had the foresight to snare him 
for a second year's engagement, Heaven only knows who 
would have. 

In a perfectly unsolicited preview, the Professor ad- 
mitted that it was only through good fortune on the 
Record's part that his services were secured at all, as 
owing to his enviable position on the doormat of learning, 
he was posing for a statue in the Hall of Shame. Only 
by much persuasion did we get his modest account of his 
visit to Germany this year. The Prof, combines in- 
telligence with a wealth of simplicity rarely found in any- 
thing human, which makes his story so much easier to 

Arriving in Germany at the end of September, he was 
met by a tremendous crowd in Berlin. Brass bands, sol- 
diers and Hitler himself were in the foreground and the 
crowd greeted him with loud cries of "II Duce! II Duce!"* 

On his going out of the station, the crowd evidently 
mistook somebody else for him, as they remained in the 
station a few moments. The professor put this down to 
ignorance on their part. However, the mistake was soon 
found out. A short and rather pugnacious looking fellow 
in a uniform seemed the centre of some interest, but when 
the professor stepped into a waiting car bearing the coat 
of arms of Germany, the interest suddenly turned to him. 
At last they realized that this was he. Professor Cy Entific. 
science's greatest bench warmer. 

Two officers ran up and he was escorted to another 
car. Although not as pretentious as the former, it too 
bore the coat of arms. A trifling mistake in the arrange- 
ments, no doubt. He was ushered into the back and sat 
down on a wooden bench which ran around the sides. 

*Note: These words are presumably some form of German greeting. 



Other dignitaries would come, of course, in due time. Owing 
to the enthusiastic crowd, the windows were barred. Very 
thoughtful, these Germans. 

Somehow, from here on the arrangements went entire- 
ly haywire and he landed up in what suggested, strangely 
enough, a jail. As it turned out, when they heard who 
he was, he was shipped out of the country under armed 
guard. A formal apology was granted for mistaking him 

for something of importance.

P.cP 1^37- 



(From the Record of February, 1904.) 

It was on a bright morning of September, almost a 
quarter of a century ago that the Norseman ghded into 
the dock at Port Hope. From its deck in the offing I had 
already caught my first glimpse of the dear old School. 
"Dear old School" I call it now, but it was new to -me then 
that morning and it certainly had not yet become dear. I 
was not so lonely as some new boys, for the "pater" was 
with me. Twenty-five years ago ! and it seems like yes- 
terday, till I think of the friends and companions I had in 
those days and remember how many — the dear old "pater" 
among them — are now no more. 

From the dock we went up to the St. Lawrence Hall 
for breakfast, and after breakfast made our way slowly 
towards the School. Never shall I forget that walk, or 
the interview with the Head, his genial reception of us, his 
reassuring manner. Here we were at T.C.S. over four 
hundred miles from home, but where I was to spend some 
of the happiest years of my life. 

My first introduction to actual school life was dinner. 
While I stood waiting in the hall, under the old clock that 
hung there with a gas-jet kept always burning in front of 
it (like the light at a shrine), I was rudely awakened from 
my thoughts by some excitement in the corridor. There 
seemed to be some wild thing loose, as a boy dashed rapidly 
by with a long tail streaming out behind from his coat. He 
shook madly at the big gate, the barrier at the head of the 
flight of stairs, and shouts of laughter greeted his dis- 
comfiture. This was my first sight of one of the many 
Joneses — Duncan A. Jones, a most liberal fellow and the 
first boy whose name I learned. While I still stood wait- 
ing knowing no one, a tall lad came up, shook hands and 
entered into conversation. Here was my first friend, a 

fellow-countryman, and so I felt at home immediately 

Hume Yerrington from far away Carson City, Nevada, the 


home of gold and pugilists. With him I went down to 
hall and was soon settled among as genial a set of com- 
panions as boy ever knew — George H. Broughall, a prefect 
at the foot of the table (Mr. Wood was the master in 
charge), Frank and Charles Perry of New York, John C. 
Fitzgerald, Randall Davidson and last but not least, John 
William Beresford Topp, a product of the Emerald Isle. 

After dinner father and I "did the town", and in the 
evening dear old Yerrington v/ent with me to the station 
to see him off. By the time we returned to the College 
I had got my bearing, "reported" and went to No. 9 on the 
Upper Flat. As I was undressing a whirlwind rushed into 
the room "to see the new boy;" it was Arthur ("Shave") 

The Housemaster at that time was the Rev. Williarn 
C. Allen of Millbrook. Like all the Aliens (and Allans), 
as later all Creightons were "Jane", his sobriquet was 
"Busty". The Third-Form master was A. C. Highton, an 
Englishman whose dog will be remembered as the School 
mascot. Mr. Highton, who took the lead in all athletic 
sports, went back to England that Christmas to become 
a Parish Priest. His successor, if I remember rightly, 
was Mr. C. J. Logan, of cricket fame. The senior member 
of the staff, the Rev. W. E. Cooper lived in town; he was 
very strict and few of us in those days quite appreciated 
his invaluable services. For my part I cannot thank him 
enough for the good he did me, and all that I learned 
through him. 

Among other masters was Mr. H. Kay Coleman (now 
a clergyman in Colorado), who had a remarkable faculty 
for teaching elementary mathematics. I must tell a story 
of him. Those were the palmy days of Ned Hanlan the 
oarsman's fame. Harry Howard — peace to his soul — sat 
one day at the foot of the form and while (as he thought) 
"H. K." was not looking, gave the imitation of a man 
rowing; quick as a wink came the order in Mr. Coleman's 
peculiar twang: "Howard, perambulate to my room and 


fetch the cane; I'll show you the Hanlan stroke." Poor 
"Skunk" ignominiously marched and duly received his 
instruction. Then Charles Edward Dudley Wood, an Old 
Boy and prefect (dubbed "Nigger" in his school-days) 
took the lower forms. Mr. J. Ramsay Montizambert of 
Quebec, who had recently married, lived in a cottage across 
the way and taught the seniors; I imagine Arthur Abbott, 
of Montreal, with the rest of us, recalls "Monty's" French 
Form. "Professor" Gilmour laboured with aspiring Ruben- 
steins, while military drill was imparted by Serg. Elliott of 
the 46th. 

I must not forget my mother's idols (idols of us boys, 
too) Miss Fortune and Mrs. Rowe, surely the most charm- 
ing matrons there ever were, nor how a surreptitious smile 
was passed along in chapel over the Psalm "and mis- 
fortune shall slay the ungodly". Mrs. Rowe went later 
to Japan with her son-in-law, the Rev. E. W. Kennedy, a 
missionary and one of our old boys in that land. Of "the 
Head" I have purposely said nothing, because no words of 
mine can add anything to the love, honour and respect we 
cherish and always shall for him. 

To turn to the boys, a halo seemed then to surround 
the School for the achievements of Archibald Lampman in 
matters intellectual, and the equal prowess in sport of 
Dyce W. Saunders, whose initials must have cost his father 
a pretty penny if he was fined for every time "D.W.S." 
was carved or scribbled on tables and benches; they had 
both just gone up from School, one to Trinity, the other to 
Osgoode Hall. "Davy" Jones, Spencer Dav/son Hague, 
George Herbert Broughall, Arther John Fidler (our organ- 
ist in Chapel), with "Dickie" Jones were in the 5th. the last 
later rector of Columbus, Ohio. The 6th. Form consisted of 
Nicholas Ferrar Davidson. In the 4th. were first and fore- 
most the rivals Ned Cayley and Ernest Fidler (clergyman 
and banker respectively), then "Jerry" Roberts, Harry 
Grant, "Bay" Stennett (a banker), Clayton Ambery (with 
the Walkers at Walkerville) , the Perrys, the Van Strau- 


benzees (both in the anny), Harry Wootton (I often won- 
der where he is), and these all in His Majesty's service — 
Norman Hugel, Victor Williams, Archie McDonald ("Big 
Head"), Teddy Hewitt, Montague Adamson and Henry 
P. Leader; Herbert Ogilvie Tremayne (good old "Trem") ; 
Archer Martin (in Victoria), "Peony" Dumble, James 
H. McNee, A. C. M. B. (Alphabet) Jones, all Toronto 
barristers; Aeneas J. McDonell, also a barrister, some- 
where in Eastern Ontario; W. F. Coy (Kingston), J. O. H. 
Marling (Toronto), and Stuart Farrar (Cedar Rapids, 
Iowa), doctors; Henry Bethune and J. W. B. Walsh, (Tor- 
onto), Harry Thompson (Hamilton), "Shy" Bogert (Mont- 
real), bankers; also Arthur Allan with Lloyds in London, 
England; E. H. Parker and Harry B. ("Bucky") Lewis, 
both in Detroit, successful men of business, as well as 
"Bob" Morris (Hamilton) and "Jimmy" Ince in Toronto. 
Stanley Henderson (a royal fellow) is in British Columbia 
with the Mutual Life, and Lloyd and Tommy Aldwell, 
Fred Kane, the Christies, Harry Fauquier, are, it is to be 
hoped, pursuing happy careers. 

In the Lent Term came Charles Henry Brent and his 
personality soon made itself felt both in School and on the 
field. Reginald Fessenden, too, has made his mark and 
few will wonder who remember the pale-faced boy of 1879 
with his eccentricities and love of books. John Hargraft, 
Fred B. Hill, Chas. M. Richardson and others have not 
escaped my memory, only — where are they? Occasionally 
I have heard of Walter J. Rogers (now living in England) 
and of the Moodys. Of the American boys, I know nothing 
of John Morris and E. K. Robertson, the two Thompsons 
and Ogilby, with "Pike" Douglas of New Orleans and 
"Dick" Cox, the trapper. James A. Yerrington still hails 
from Carson where he has represented his State at the 
Buffalo Fair as Commissioner and has been appointed to 
the same honourable office at St. Louis. 

In going over the roll of the boys of twenty-five years 
ago, as well as my memory serves, saddest of all is the 


thought how many have passed "the great divide." There 
is no more the welcome "Here" to the names of Harry E. 
Clarke, Harold McL. Howard, William Woodward, William 
Murray Gooch, Percival T. Green, Thomas Simpson Arnton, 
Edward Lewis Cox and Charles Selby Allan (both drowned, 
one on the Pacific Coast, the other in Lake Simcoe) ; gone 
too are that talented physician John Rannie Logan and my 
schoolmate William A. H. Lewin, afterwards in holy orders, 
who succumbed to his fatal disease in the West.

Being "given the bird" is not an honorary presentation. 
In fact, in some circles it is considered almost an insult.

from observation of certain local examples we have come 

to the conclusion that the species is just plain dumb.

KERR, J. W. — Jim was last year's Head Prefect, and he 
capped an extremely successful career here by 
winning the Bronze Medal. As a prefect, he showed 
remarkable aptitude for wielding a spanker, and also 
carried out the rest of his duties without fear or 
favour. Jim, although perhaps never a star aca- 
demically, was one of the less dim bulbs of the S.L.C. 
In the sport world, he shone as Captain of football and 
cricket, throwing himself into the fray with con- 
centrated energy, and he was no mean squash player. 
Jim is now working, we think ; the best of luck to him. 

ARMSTRONG, D. H.— The smaller, although not very 
small, of the two "Stals" arrived here roughly about 
1929. In the course of time he "graduated" to the 
Senior School, and it is here that we obtain some more 
delightful recollections of him. As a classmate, Stal 
had no equal. He was always eager to help you with 
your work, although once or twice we did have to ask 
him if he was finished with our French study for the 
next day. We don't know yet how he read our writ- 
ing. Stal's real love was Ancient History, as is 
illustrated by his continued interest in it over a period 
of some 3 or 4 years. He was always somewhat of 
an Epicurean, believing that the secret of happiness 
lay in pleasure. Stal made a great prefect last year 
and as a member of the first rugby, hockey and gym. 
teams, showed himself to be an exceptional athlete. 
We wish Mr. Armstrong as our new assistant 
physical instructor unbounded success. 

BLACK, W. — During the last eight years, the two principal 
exports from Nova Scotia have been fish and Will 
Black. Sport was the field of endeavour in which Will 


excelled. His kicking and running were invaluable to 
last year's rugby team. He captained the First hockey 
team, was a member of the First gym. eight, and 
runner-up in the tennis championship. He Vv-'as also 
one of the few enthusiastic cricketers on middleside. 
Like others of the athletically great, Will made a show 
of absorbing knowledge in the ranks of the S.L.C. As 
a Prefect, his strength of wrist gained him the healthy 
respect of new boys. We hear that Will is now enjoy- 
ing a pleasant change ... he is working. Good luck, 


MacLAREN— F. G.— It was in 1933 that the "Sheckle" 
first came to Port Hope and climbed the hill to see 
what was new at T.C.S. In his last term Fred was 
made a School Prefect. He did some great work on 
the line for the Third rugby team and on the Third 
cricket team his bowling was beyond description. His 
pipe-smoking ability was unquestionably of the high- 
est standing, and by his departure the School has lost 
one of its best tobacco connoisseurs. He is now at 
R.M.C. learning to be a soldier. We wish him the 
best of luck with the 5 a.m. drills and the rest of it. 

McLERNON, R. A. — From a small and insignificant-look- 
ing being four years ago, Roy grew to be quite a 
"shark". A keen supporter of the British Empire, he 
might almost have been called "Britannia", but instead 
he grew up from "fist" to "shark". We found it very 
convenient to let Roy, another aeroplane nut, buy all 
the hterature for us to read. Roy left T.C.S. a Prefect, 
with his 1st. VI., 1st. VIII., 1st. XI. and 2nd. XII. 
colours. He successfully circumvented all difficulties 
in the McGill matriculation, and is now attending that 
institution, where we are sure he will pave the way 
for a bright and prosperous future. 


OSLER, C. R.— The famous blush of the worthy "Po" is. 
needless to say, missed by everyone. A Prefect and 
distinguished both academically and in athletics, Po 
was vice-captain of the cricket XI. and quarter-back 
on the First rugby team. A couple of years ago he 
was goal-keeper on the First hockey team, but gave 
that up for a warmer sport. He is now at Trinity 
College, Toronto, where we wish him continued 

RUSSEL, B. S.— After some five years at T.C.S. Bruce 
left us, as a prefect, last June for McGill. Athletics 
were Bruce's strong suit. He was a halfback on the 
first football team, Captain of basketball, on the 
squash team, and a great cross-country runner, 
winning the Oxford Cup for Brent House twice. As 
we say good-bye to his sylph like form, we wish him 
all the luck in the world in his new "career". 

CUTTEN, J. E. — In his four years in the Senior School, Jim 
proved himself extremely popular. His powers of 
mimicry and wit made him the life of the S.L.C. spares, 
and were perhaps the cause of some of the Staff's grey 
hairs. A fine athlete, Jim helped the First Team to 
many a victory by his bursts of speed on the rugby 
field and his hundred-yard dashes were the main 
events on Sports Days. A member of the First hockey 
team and the Second Eight, "that Cutten boy" was a 
Senior and one of the best. We shall miss him. 

HYNDMAN, H. H. — 'Arry dropped in about 1935 and stay- 
ed long enough to be Head Boy in 1937. Harry's 
fiendish ability to take certain people "for a ride" will 
not soon be forgotten. Believe us, we know. Harry 
was an enthusiastic pipe smoker, and we think that he 


will soon become "an independent tobacco expert". 
Despite his somewhat antagonistic attitude toward the 
weaker sex, we can't believe he really meant it. As 
an athlete, Harry was spasmodic. In his last year he 
played for the third football team (a somewhat terrify- 
ing spectacle he was), and even ran in the Oxford 
Cup. He liked hockey, because he didn't play and 
could stay at School and keep warm. Gk)od luck to 
him at R.M.C. 

HEIGHINGTON, A. G.— Geoff came in 1933 from the 
Queen City and was a Sixth-former and Jiinior in his 
last year. Although not an athlete by inclination, 
"Height!" in his last year was one of the members of 
Mr. Davidson's famous "Purple Squad". A School 
librarian and a most persuasive debater, he was also 
prominent in the chess competitions and the author of 
distinctive stories and poems in the Record. At the 
last School dance, Geoff showed considerable nerve by 
smoking his first cigarette. He is now at Trinity 
College, Toronto, where we hope fortune will favour 

JOHNSTON, M. G.— In most of his pictures, "Popeye" 
seemed to be gazing out into the blue beyond, looking 
for we know not what. It was almost as if nothing 
else existed. Popeye was here long enough, and in 
sufficient team pictures, for us to have ample oppor- 
tunity to study this phenomenon. However, it became 
far too complex, even more so than tracing his past, 
(at least the part of it which we dared). An extreme- 
ly philosophic athlete, he was a "hither and yon" mem- 
ber of the second hockey and cricket teams and a 
sometimes backfield and sometimes lineman on the 
third rugby team. His biting tongue and perverted 
sense of humour will be sorely missed on the Record 
staff, but we are sure he will do well at McGill. 


LEATHER, E. H.— In his years at T.C.S., Ted distinguished 
himself in many ways. Last year, he was Editor of 
the Record, and we think he did an excellent job. He 
produced two new boys' plays, and acted in the School 
play one year. We are still in doubt as to whether 
he wants to be another Lord Beaverbrook, Eddy Duchin 
or fashion expert on Esquire. We think he has a lot 
of grey hairs from trying to reform Willie Mood (but 
who wouldn't?). He left us, a noisy but very serious 
senior, and a bit of a Cassanova. Good luck at R.M.C. 

LOWE, W. B. — Like all Seniors and true geniuses, "Pete" 
had his little pecularities. Among them were a one-man 
pipe and a fondness for spending winter afternoons in 
a hot bath. Pete's particular form of genius was 
painting, in which he excelled. His pictures showed 
signs of the touch that distinguished the master from 
the dauber. Pete came up from the Junior School and 
by dint of perseverance gained the right to wear a 
Sixth-form tie in his last year, accumulating second 
team colours in rugby and cricket on the way. He will 
be missed by Mr. Schaefer, the habitues of the smok- 
ing-room and all others who came in contact with him 
in his ten years in the J.S. and S.S. He has gone to 
study art in London, England. 

MAGEE, B. R. — "Boo-boo" Magee came to us from Radley 
College in England in '34. An immigrant from the 
home of cricket, he proved his mettle by promptly 
making the first cricket eleven, of which he was a 
member for three years. In the Canadian Schools 
cricket tour of '35 he did very well, and in School 
matches showed himself a fine bowler and fielder, 
though a somewhat erratic bat. On the squash team 
and a stalwart of the first basketball squad, Boo-boo 


culminated his athletic career by entering the Oxford 
Cup race, in which, running seventh, he was fed 
glucose pills to keep him going. After a "Sixth form 
and Senior" year, Boo-boo has become a gentleman- 
cadet at R.M.C. Best of luck Brian, and .... don't 
lose that double-headed coin! 

SMITH L. — One thing we always admired about Lew, was 
his "musical" ability. As a bugler in the band, he 
could at a moment's notice render "Bugle Call Rag" 
or "Sugar Blues". When he felt he could tear him- 
self away from his work, Lew proved himself to be 
somewhat of an athlete, playing goal on the first 
hockey team and wicket-keeper on the cricket team. 
Despite what seemed to be a slight preference for 
Middleside in his final year, he obtained his second 
rugby colours and departed a senior. Good-luck to 
him at Bishop's College where he once more tackles the 
problem of education. 

SMITH, R and H.— It was in 1933 that the Smith twins, 
Robert and Howard, were sorted out from the pulp 
logs and sent west to get an education. From first 
to last they remained indistinguishable, hence this 
double-header of a biography. In four years at T.C.S. 
they became a School institution, or institutions and 
their leaving has made a gaping hole, or gaping holes, 
in the rugby and gym. teams. In '36 they shared the 
Bradbum Cup, and in '37 Howard held it jointly with 
McLemon. who had beaten Robert before learning that 
it was not Howard who was in the ring. Their sketches 
often ornamented the pages of the Record. Both were 
Seniors and members of the McGill Fifth when they

Canadian Cchcols Cricket Team Made Welcome by the Mayor of 

(See article by F. Hogg) 


SCOTT, G. F. — "Geoff", combined something very few boys 
ever do. That is, athletic ability and a good academic 
standing. He was a rugby and hockey player, a 
gjminast and a "bit of a brain". He played a "star" 
game for the third football team and was on the second 
hockey and gym. teams. If he had returned this year, 
as we hoped he might, he would undoubtedly have 
been a "first stringer" in work and play. He is now 
at Bishop's College with another "swing addict", Lew 
Smith; we miss his cheery nature, and hope he will 
visit us often. Good swinging, Geoff. 

SYLVESTER, J.— Although "Silver" was legally a "new 
boy", his achievements in his year here raised him far 
above this ignominious class. His well-propelled 
weight gained him his First Team rugby colours, his 
skill gained him a place on the basket-ball team, and 
his cheerfulness gained him universal popularity. He 
was also noted for his voice, which, though never 
harnessed for Chapel use, rendered invaluable assist- 
ance to smoking-room quartets. Everybody who knew 
"Silver" feels genuinely sorry that he was not with us 
longer. Scholastically, he was one of the luminaries 
of the Sixth, and we wish him every success at McGill. 

WOOD, D. — The "ja boogie" was captured in the woods of 
his native Haiti and sent in a cage to the School on the 
Hill in 1934. Here he remained until last term, spend- 
ing most of his time exercising his animal instincts 
among the steel rafters of the gym., much to the won- 
derment of an ever-present crowd. Dan received his 
Jimior privileges and showed his talent in the field 
of sports by obtaining 2nd. XII., 2nd. VIII. and 3rd. XI. 
colours, also performing well in the swimming pool. We 
wish him good climbing in the tree-tops of McMaster. 



WHITE, W. E.— "Clarabelle" bounded in with his usual 
bovine grace, about 1935. One of his major achieve- 
ments was that of being librarian, and knowing 
nothing about the library. A somewhat misled rugby- 
player, a member of the third hockey team, he ended 
a chequered, athletic career by going out first ball 
in one of those tense, snappy cricket matches usually 
played on Middleside. We wish him all success at 
Trinity College.

About the only interesting thing on the way over was 
the sighting of three icebergs. One of them, which was 
considerably larger than the ship, was only about a mile 
away. There being no sun at the time, I can't go into 
ecstasies about sunbeams dancing on its silver crown, etc.; 
but it really was an inspiring sight. 

Since we landed at Glasgow, we came around the top 
of Ireland, which is a pretty formidable looking sight at 
that particular spot, and though the green hills of Old Erin 
exist, no doubt, it was more like a rock field in distress. 

Scotland is a great place, especially if you have a 
waterproof hide; it rained all the time we were there. How- 
ever, the Scotch are a most cheery race and seem to be al- 
ways telling jokes or punning, just in the course of con- 
versation. We had several examples of this from com- 
plete strangers, two of which I think were quite good, con- 
sidering the weather. 

(1) My brother was just about to weigh himself on 
a scale in a cloak room, when an old gentleman reached 
past him for his coat and said: "I'll let you do the 'weight- 
ing'. ('Waiting' for those of feeble intellect like myself). 

(2) We got on a street car on a very rainy day and 
my brother said to the conductor "Pare?" The conductor 
said "Tis nae fair". We didn't catch on for a while, but 
he enlightened us as to the state of the weather. 

We went on several tours in England and Scotland, 
usually just for the afternoon and we always found, though 
it was not included in the itinerary, that about four o'clock 
the bus driver would stop and say "There will be a stop 
here of half an hour for tea." Of course, they always 
stop at a tea garden, so what can you do ? Another trick 
they have is to pull up at some mouldy old ruin of a church, 
etc., and say "There will be a stop here for ten minutes. If 
any of you wish to visit the church, it will be a shilling, 


but if there's a party of ten, I can get you in for sixpence." 
These fellows have the Chicago gangsters trimmed a mile 
for removing one's excess shekels. 

We went boating on the River Cam at Cambridge in a 
Canadian-type canoe, and were regarded as a bit of a 
curiosity by the residents, who, it seemed, do not use 
single-blade paddles. Cambridge is very beautiful. I re- 
marked on this to some Oxford students, whose only reply 
was "Have you seen Oxford?" We hadn't, but we still 
thought Cambridge nice. 

On the bus between Cambridge and London we ran 
into some "Confirmed South African Note Takers." This 
is not a rare species, as you can find them in front of any 

European cathedral of note though they need not 

come from South Africa. They regarded my brother, who 
was peacefully sleeping, as a bit of a heretic or something 
of like nature. 

London is so well known that I won't say anything 
about it. 

We next went to Holland, which, while it is quite in- 
teresting for a day or two, is neither exciting nor impres- 
sive. The Dutch seem to be a stolid race, not given to ups 
and downs of disposition. 

After Holland, we popped into Germany, and popped out 
again into Switzerland quite soon, in one eighteen-hour 
train ride. Germany, I would say, is a place where flag 
factories flourish and it never rains but it Heils. Too many 
soldiers and too much rye bread spoiled it for us. 

We next struck Interlaken in Switzerland. The 
holidayer's paradise is Switzerland. Here one dines well, 
sleeps well, and gets no cinders in his eye .... because 
they have electric trains. We were lucky enough to have 
good weather, and so were able to climb Mount Monch, 
which is right next to the famous Jungfrau. 

The picture was taken on the top in a blizzard, and I 
doubted if it would turn out. Monch, by the way, is 14,000 


feet high. However, we actually only climbed 2,400 feet, 
as there is a rack and pinion railway most of the way up. 

After Switzerland: Paris, and the very fine exposition. 
Then my brother left me and I continued my travels by 
bicycle alone.

In common with many other schools in this province, 
we began the Michaelmas term much later than orig^ally 
planned. However, by October 5th., most of the new 
citizens of the School had put in an appearance. To them 
we extend a hearty welcome, and express the hope that 
they will derive enjoyment and benefit from their time at 
the School. 

We wish also to welcome most heartily Mr. Tottenham, 
who comes to us from Kingston and the R.M.C. 

We are very grateful indeed to Col. G. N. Birks of 
Montreal for his generosity in making possible the fitting 
up of the dark-room. 

Another gift to the Junior School that has been much 
appreciated is the splendid mantel radio given anonymously 
for the boys' reading-room. The School is most grateful 
to the donor. 

A special matinee on October 22nd. enabled the boys 
to see their first movie of the term, and for many their first 
for some time. 

A masquerade Hallowe'en party is planned for Satur- 
day, October 30th.

sides. In general, the younger and lighter boys are play- 
ing soccer and the older ones rugby. The soccer team 
have had one game to date, with Lakefield, played on 
Saturday, October 23rd. 

The game was a close one, played in snow with a ball 
of varying sizes! Lakefield had the better of the play in 
the first half, and T.C.S. in the second, with the appropriate 
result of a scoreless tie. 

The team: goal, Reid; backs, Woodhouse, Wills; half- 
backs, Gibson, Irwin, Haas; forwards, Morris, Westel, 
Britton, Moorhouse, Vivian. 

A return match at Lakefield is planned for Saturday, 
November 6th.

also hoped that the Ridley College Lower School team will 
be able to come down for a match. 


The following boys have gone up to the Senior School 
this term: E. G. Finley, J. O. Hart, W. D. Morris, J. B. 
Rogers, E. T. Oakley, C. N. Rougvie, R. F. Beardshaw,

From remarks heard in different parts, the Old Boys' 
section of the Record is its most popular feature for very 
many Old Boys. 

Have you stopped to consider where this news comes 

Apart from a few items accidentally gleaned from the 
press, most of it comes from letters sent in by Old Boys. 
The Record aims to be the organ of the O.B.A. as well as of 
the School. Can you do anything to help the Old Boys' 
section to become bigger and better? Send a letter to 
the Secretary of the T.C.S. O.B.A., Port Hope, with news 
about yourself or those in your locality or university. It 
will be welcomed, and will help the Association to mean 
more to its members. 

Meeting of the Executive Committee 

A meeting of the Executive Committee of the T.C.S. 
O.B.A. was held in Toronto, Wednesday, October 20th. 
S. S. DuMoulin was in the chair and the following were 
present: Argue Martin, Harry Symons, Brick Osier, Phil. 
Ketchum, and Eric Morse, secretary. 

Among other matters discussed, it was decided that, 
in future, notices of School matches and general activities 
of the Association should be sent out direct from the Cen- 
tral Association, and that Branch secretaries should be 
responsible for sending out notices only of strictly branch 

Favourable progress was reported from both Mon- 
treal and Hamilton respecting branch organization; it was 
hoped that branches would be formed in both these cities 
by the first of the year. 

The next meeting of the Committee was called for 
Wednesday, November 24th., when fuller information on 
such matters as the cost of the Old Boys' Directory, 1938, 


the Old Boys' tie, and suitable investment of the Capital 
Fund would be available. 

Total membership in the Association was reported as 
being over 350. 

A very fine tribute to Mr. R. P. Jellett was the 
biography which appeared in the Canadian Churchman in 
the Spring. There can be few Old Boys who have devoted 
themselves so whole heartedly to the interests of the School 
over such a long period of time, and who, at the same 
time, have distinguished themselves in so many other 
walks of life. We hope to reprint some of this biography 
in another number of the Record. 

Another Old Boy to be justly honoured for the part 
he has played in the life of the Dominion is Mr. C. A. 
Bogert, until recently the General Manager of the Dominion 
Bank. We reprint below some of the biography which 
appeared in the Canadian Banker, and would like to add 
our tribute to this very loyal and generous son of the 
School on the Hill. 

"Clarence Bogert's father gave him a good education at 
Trinity College School, Port Hope, and hoped that he would 
go into the Church; one is intrigued by the thought that 
in him the Church of England has perhaps lost an arch- 
bishop. The Church, however, made no appeal to him as 
a profession; and his thoughts turned to banking, chiefly 
because one of his friends at Trinity College School was 
the son of Robert Bethune, the cashier (or general man- 
ager) of The Dominion Bank. Enquiries made through 
the Rev. C. J. S. Bethune, the headmaster of Trinity 
College School, and the brother of Robert Bethune, elicited 
the fact that there were at the moment no vacancies for 
juniors in The Dominion Bank (for banks were difficult to 
get into in those days) ; and the prospective bank clerk was 


almost on the point of accepting a post in The Molsons 
Bank in Trenton, at $200 per annum, when a vacancy did 
occur in The Dominion Bank which carried with it a salary 
of $250 per annum. The difference in salary was so vast 
that the offer of this position was immediately accepted; 
and Clarence Bogert entered The Dominion Bank on Nov- 
ember 4, 1881, as a junior clerk in the branch at Uxbridge, 
Ontario. Incidentally, it is worthy of note that in those 
days the appointment of a new junior clerk at a salary of 
$250 was a matter of such moment that it was solemnly 
and formally made by the Board of Directors of the Bank. 

His father, with seven other children to support and 
educate, told him that all he could do for him was to start 
him out with a new suit of clothes. To pay for this, he 
gave him a draft on a tannery in Uxbridge, and into this 
tannery the young Clarence Bogert made his way on a cold 
night in November, 1881. In trying to find the office in 
the tannery, he fell into a tanning vat, and ruined the only 
suit of clothes he possessed. Thus, as he has said, he 
started his banking career "with a splash." 

It is worthy of note that when Clarence Bogert be- 
came chairman of the Board of The Dominion Bank in 
1934, he had completed fifty-three years of service in the 
Bank, and his brother Mortimer, who retired that year as 
manager of the Montreal branch of the Bank, had com- 
pleted forty-seven. That is to say, these two brothers had 
between them completed one hundred years of service in 
the same bank. This is a record which might well be called 
to the attention of Mr. Ripley. 

Clarence Bogert is not only a good banker; he is also 
a good sportsman. In his younger days, he rowed with 
the Argonauts, generally practising in the early morning 
before the Bank opened; and for several seasons he was 
stroke of one of the Argonauts' fours. In his later years, 
he has devoted himself mainly to golf. He became a 
member of the Toronto Golf Club in 1896, and still plays a 
very good game. His tee-shots may not have a spectacular 


length ; but when gets within reach of the putting-green, it 
is marvellous how he can roll the ball up to the pin, and 
as for his putting, it has a touch of wizardry about it. He 
was president of the Toronto Golf Club from 1923 to 1926. 
and president of the Royal Canadian Golf Association in 
1926. Of late years he has taken a great interest in the 
Canadian Seniors' Golf Association, and he was its presi- 
dent from 1928 to 1930". 

C. F. Bullen ('81-'83) is retiring from the Canada Life 
Assurance Company. The Toronto Globe and Mail of July 
16th. reported: 

"Mr. Charles F. Bullen, who for forty-two years has 
been the successful Manager of the Chicago Branch of the 
Canada Life Assurance Company, has decided to retire. 
His service with the Company began in its Head Office 
fifty-four years ago, when insurance on this continent was 
still in the day of small things. He was then a junior in 
their Head Office in the City of Hamilton. 

A service to one company extending beyond the half- 
century mark is not often recorded. It is not to be won- 
dered at that the Company feels that the occasion is one 
of great moment and regret to them. 

The total life insurance he was responsible for as at 
December 31, 1932, was $128,500,000 Group and Ordinary 
Insurance with total premiums of $1,822,000. This record 
of personal achievement undoubtedly places Mr. Bullen 
among the foremost Life Underwriters in his oVvTi or any 
other Company in North America. 

During the long process of building up his large per- 
sonal business, Mr. Bullen has seen the life insurance field 
man attain recognition for his great social and economic 
value to the community. He relates how in the early days 
signs were posted, warning off all "book salesmen, pedlars 
and life insurance agents". He met obstacles and difficulties 
which, considering the respect in which Life Insurance is 


now held, seem almost incredible, but he has the satisfac- 
tion of knowing that he has contributed much to the steady 
improvement in one community's appreciation of the Life 
Insurance business." 

Mr. Bullen presented the fund to the School from 
which the Bullen Trophy for squash is annually given. 

T. B. Woodyatt ('13-'14) is on a big job in Newfound- 
land. The following account is extracted from press re- 

"In charge of construction of the huge Nev/foundland 
Airport, eastern base for wheeled 'planes eventually to be 
operated in the transatlantic air service, is a Canadian 
virtually unknown even to airmen in his home city of 

Recent news despatches about the transatlantic service 
and the airport construction all failed to identify him be- 
yond giving his name and mentioning he was "of Toronto". 
He is better known outside Canada than on his native 
heath, for aviation officials of Newfoundland and Great 
Britain think highly of him. 

His name is T. B. Woodyatt, and he is engineer-sales 
adviser on the staff of Colas Roads Ltd., Toronto, afRliate 
unit in the world-wide ramifications of Shell Oil. The road 
firm produces asphalt which has been put through a process 
of emulsification to permit it to be laid without heat 

A native of Brantford and graduate of Trinity College 
School in Port Hope, Ontario, Mr. Woodyatt was for some 
time on the staffs of the Dufferin Construction Co. and 
Raynor Construction Co., and functioned in sales, engineer- 
ing and supervisory capacities in the building of roads 
throughout Ontario. Of generous proportions and genial 
disposition, there is little he does not know about the laying 
out and construction of roads. There is little essential dif- 


ference between a modern highway and the physical 
aspects of airport runways. 

Commander Paton of the British air ministry, for 
which the Newfoundland Government is carrying out the 
airport development, has expressed himself satisfied that 
Mr. Woodyatt is the "best man for the job" in the island 
Dominion. And the job is one of the biggest of its kind 
in the world, one that foreshadows the use of huge, wheel- 
ed, land 'planes in the transatlantic air service. 

The construction of the Newfoundland airport, the 
greater speed of land 'planes, and the greater pay-load they 
can carry because of needing less gasoline, all give assur- 
ance that wheeled machines will eventually be used in the 
transatlantic service. It is even possible that the British 
will ultimately use them entirely instead of flying boats, 
but this depends on the result of test flights and the 
attitude of American interests represented by Pan-Ameri- 
can Airways. 

The Newfoundland Airport, three miles from Gander's 
Lake, will cover 860 acres, and will have four runways — 
three 4,500 feet long and 600 feet wide, one 5,000 feet long 
and 1,200 feet wide. 

The paved runways will consist of 1.5 million square 
yards of asphalt, equivalent to 120 miles of 20-foot high- 
way. It is expected that one runway v/ill be completed 
by September, and the half-way mark on the whole under- 
taking is scheduled to be reached by November. Com- 
pletion date for the whole project is November, 1938. It 
is possible that an experimental flight across the ocean 
with a land 'plane will be made next fall if the work is 
sufficiently advanced." 

Archer Baldwin ('17-'24) wrote this summer to tell 
us of an interesting bird capture. His letter said: 

"Shutting up the chicken coops later than usual one 
evening, I discovered a marauding owl. Dazzling it with 


a flashlight, I succeeded in rolling it up in a bag and putting 
it in a crate, where we all got a good look at it. Thinking 
others might also be mterested, we sent it down to the 
authorities at Toronto the next day, hoping it would 
survive and take to its news surroundings." 

The Royal Ontario Museum of Zoology acknowledged 
the gift as follows : 

"Thank you for your letter of July 11th., advising us 
that you had captured a Great Homed Owl alive and were 
shipping it to us. It arrived in good condition. We got 
in touch with Riverdale Zoo, and they were very glad of 
the opportunity of securing a live specimen. Their man 
picked the owl up this morning. On their behalf, may I 
thank you for your interest in forwarding this bird to 

We were invaded by an R.M.C. contingent one day 
when Gentlemen Cadets Harry Hyndman, Fred McLaren, 
Brian Magee and Ted Leather returned to the old stamp- 
ing ground, resplendent in their new uniforms. We were 
glad to see them looking so well despite their long and 
rather arduous days. 

Don Nickle ('16-'19) called on October 28th., the first 
time for many years. Don is with the Gypsum, Lime and 
Alabastine Co. in Toronto, is married and has three 
children, two of them boys, future T.C.S. boys we hope.

THE origin of the almond is a 
matter of conjecture, so long has it 
been known. It is supposed to be a 
native of Southwestern Asia and the 
Mediterranean region. There are two 
types, the bitter and sweet. The bitter 
almond appears to be the original, the 
sweet may have been an accidental 
variety. Today the latter is grown

The death of T. H. Bickle ('28-'32) came as a tragic 
shock in July. It seemed incredible that one of the best 
swimmers T.C.S. ever had should meet his end in the water. 

"T.H.", as he was generally called, was one of a party 
staying at Gananoque. Some acquaintances having lost 
an outboard motor, he put on a diving suit and descended 
from the yacht Nomad in twenty-eight feet of water to 
try and recover it. When no signals came, he was hauled 
up after ten minutes and it was found that he had been 
asphyxiated, apparently by some unsuspected defect that 
had developed in the diving suit. 

Many will remember T.H. as he v/as at T.C.S. : a quiet 
lad, superb in the swimming pool and taking his share in 
other sports, often to be found in a book. Probably no boy 
of his year read more first class literature or had wider 
intellectual interests. Requiescat in pace.

The Record is published six times a year, in the months of October, December, 
February, April, June and August 


The end of another rugby season brings another issue 
of the Record, another issue produced after a long, arduous 
struggle to obtain enough literary contributions to make 
it interesting. We wish to remind the School that the 
Record staff is a small group of individuals organized for 
the purpose of doing the routine work connected with pro- 
ducing a periodical. The literary efforts should be con- 
tributed by you who are not on the staff. Instead of be- 
ing forced to beg on bended knee for items, the editor 
should be besieged by would-be contributors. It is your 
magazine — why not help to make it more interesting? 

Writing for the Record should interest you because 
of the help it will be in future life. Creating a poem or a 
story is an invaluable form of self-expression. It will en- 
large your vocabulary, improve your use of English, and 
teach you to express yourself clearly, a skill which is in- 
dispensable in this day and generation. Dale Carnegie 
says that the best method of persuading a person to do 
anything is to point out the advantages of doing it. We 
are trying to point out to you the advantages of contribut- 
ing to the Record. It will not only help you personally 


(which probably does not interest you) but will result in a 
better magazine (which should interest you). And re- 
member we always welcome constructive criticism. 

—P. J. G. 

There has been during the last few years an ever- 
growing movement in the presentation of drama in our 
schools. A change has become apparent in the modern 
system of education, and in many instances it has been 
realised how close is the alliance between drama and educa- 
tion. The most tangible form of English literature is the 
dramatic one. Poetry cannot be fully appreciated until 
the student has practised the art, no more can painting or 
sculpture. The best way to study a play is to act it. 

Shakespeare has repeatedly been blamed for boredom 
in the subject. Difficult passages have to be parsed, analysed, 
and literally stuffed into the memory, with the ultimate 
result that all enjoyment that might have been gained from 
the beautiful English is lost. The greatest of English 
dramatists is furthermore avoided as much as possible in 
after life, and performances of his works shunned. 

Though great advances have been made there is still in 
far too many centres a tendency to conform to the old 
system of studying drama. It is a grave fault in the 
educational system, and the school is confronted with the 
problem of teaching dramatic appreciation when there is 
so much that opposes. Yet in many cases the school 
Dramatic Society chooses a play for production that is of 
inferior dialogue and bad construction. 

Drama is an art and a very composite one. Putting 
on a play at the end of the term is too often merely con- 
sidered for what entertainment it is going to afford, and 
this is the attitude of many directors who produce plays in 
our Schools. If the play chosen has no literary assets and 
is but a comical buffoonery, then nothing but a foolish en- 


tertainment can be the result. If this is the type of play 
that the School wishes to perform nothing can be gained 
from the production. 

Modem educationalists and serious drama students 
realise how much more can be gained from the production 
of a dramatically good and well written play. The actors 
participating can get much from rehearsals that is of 
educational value. The production will become the focus 
point for the whole artistic work of the School. Music, 
design, elocution will converge and the School theatre will 
produce a feeling for the arts. Nor is it the intention of 
the School to turn out actors any more than it is the 
object of the School magazine to train journalists. Culture 
is the essence of what is obtained aiid that :,.; 1-ie aim of

School News 

The New Boys' Race 

The New Boys' Race was run off this year on the 
moraing of November 11th. The weather was cool and 
crisp, but the ground somewhat soggy. About thirty 
runners took part over the course from the football field, 
past the Junior School on the west, along to the first road 
to the north, eastward by this road to the comer of the 
first north-and-south road, and back by this and the old 
railroad track. 

Stokes finished first, in a time of ten minutes. Langdon 
was second and Somerville took third place, coming in just 
a few seconds before Finley. 

Points for the Magee Cup: Somerville 10; Finley 5; 
Heaven 3. 

Kicking and Catching Cup 

The competition for Dr. Orchard's Kicking and Catch- 
ing Cup was held on November 25th. The winner was 
Irwin i, whose kicking has been a feature of the first team's 

The scores, out of a maximum of 120 points, were: — 
Irwin i, 107; Irwin ii, 841/2; Curtis, 83; Peacock i, 81; 
Turcot ii, 72; Turcot i, 69; Duggan i, 611/2; Landry 56. 

Football Song 

A new T.C.S. football song was heard for the first 
time at the football dinner. The music has been composed 
by Mr. Cohu and the words are by Mr. Parr. 

The history of the song may be of interest. Some 
years ago, Mr. Sly made the suggestion that the School 
needed more songs, and offered to compose music to accom- 
pany any words that might be supplied. Mr. Parr accepted 
this challenge and wrote some verses for a football song. 


Unfortunately, the rhythm baffled the musician, and no 
tune was forthcoming. After Mr. Sly's departure, an 
attempt to set the song was made by Mr. Buckland, but 
with no success. A year ago, the task was handed to Mr. 
Cohu, but he too gave it up in despair. 

Mr. Parr then reversed the process, undertaking to 
make new words if a rousing tune could be provided first. 
Mr. Cohu called this bluff with the spirited tune which 
made such an appeal to those at the dinner, and the song 
is now in being. 

A copy is being presented with this number of the 

Talk by Mr. C. L. Burton 

Mr. C. L. Burton, President of the Robert Simpson 
Company, spoke to the School on November 5th., on the 
subject of Preparing for a Career. In a striking address, he 
stressed the need to think of the work rather than the 
salary paid for it. 

Mr. Burton said he started work at $2 a week and had 
to walk three miles to and from his business. But he said 
he didn't think of the salary, for he didn't believe he was 
worth anything. "You must learn to do whatever work 
you are doing in the very best way it can be done," he said, 
"and not worry about what you are getting out of it. Then 
you will have a pride in your work and a pride in yourself. 
And if you are employed by a good firm you will find that 
your work will be appreciated." 

"Make the heaviest possible demands on yourself — not 
on others. Later on when you are in an executive position 
you will have to learn how to make demands on others. 
There are few can learn this. The most difficult posts to 
fill to-day are the highly paid positions requiring executive 

"Do you know," he said, "that you boys in this hall to- 
night could change the face of Canada to make it the most 


wonderful country in the world? There is nothing you 
could not do if you find out your native ability and give 
yourself to your work heart and soul. You will never do 
anything well unless you can learn to like it." 

Showing of Coronation Pictures 

On the evening of December first the School was en- 
thralled for two hours by the colour movies of Mr. Fred 
Roy of Peterborough. Before starting Mr. Roy emphasised 
the fact that he was only an amateur in the realm of colour- 
cinematography but the beauty and clarity of his films be- 
lied his words. The pictures showed New York's skyline, 
scenes on board the Queen Mary, and various beauty spots 
in England. The manoeuvres of the British Fleet at night 
were particularly interesting. The climax of the perform- 
ance was the views of the Coronation procession and cere- 
mony. The actual scenes inside the Abbey were from the 
oflficial government film but the pictures of the procession 
were taken by Mr. Roy. It was universally agreed to be an 
interesting, instructive, and enjoyable performance. 

Honour Rolls 

A new heading for a prize list has been inscribed on 
the panelling in the Hall. It is the Lieutenant Governor's 
Silver Medal for English, generously founded last year by 
Dr. Bruce. The title has been suitably decorated, with a 
rose for England, a thistle for Scotland, a shamrock for 
Ireland, and a maple leaf for Canada. The first name is 
that of E. H. C. Leather, who won the medal last year. 

A beginning has been made towards lettering the 
names of the Prefects on the panelling around the Head 
Table in the Hall. So far only those of the years 1932-1937 
have been lettered, but more will be done every year.

Holiday for the Headmaster's Son 
The School was granted a whole holiday on Thursday, 
November 11th., in honour of the birth of John Anthony 
Cheyne Ketchum. It is the first time for 59 years that 
a Headmaster's child has been bom at the School. 

New Boys' Show 

The annual New Boys' show is to be presented on the 
last night of term. A humorous melodrama has been 
written by Langmuir and under his direction, with the 
assistance of Seagram, the actors and chorus are being put 
through their paces in rehearsal. 

An additional item on the programme will be the one- 
act comedy "Elegant Edward", by Gertrude Jennmgs and 
E. Boulton, which is being put on by members of the 
Dramatic Club. 


A soccer league has been organised to fill the doldrums 
between football and hockey. There are twelve teams, 
each consisting of a master and his "advisees". Unexpected 
interest has been shown owing to the active part taken by 
the Staff. 

Library Staff Trip 

On November 11th., the Librarians accompanied Mr. 
Maier to the Book Fair in Toronto, where they viewed the 
exhibits with an eye to future purchases for the Library. 

Hallowe'en Partj' 

On Hallowe'en Saturday night the New Boys gathered 
round the swimming pool, dived in, and at the starting gun 
swam like hunting halibut after a goodly number of apples 
bobbing up and down on the surface of the water. What 



the swimmers were really trying to do was to capture 
these apples in their mouths and drop them into pails on 
the pool's edge. 

When the human fish had exhausted the supply of 
apples, the remaining New Boys made themselves ready to 
perform in the gym. This affair was more of a "mad 
dash for the border" than anything else. We understand 
it is commonly called an obstacle race. The main trouble 
with this race was that some one had thought up the idea 
of having the participants carry over a "long long trail" 
a potato adroitly balanced on a spoon; and this, much to 
some people's chagrin, was not as easy as it sounds. 

After all had had a turn at the obstacles, they left the 
gym. to turn the classrooms upside down, looking for 
chocolate bars. This, together with the racking of brains 
to discover ten dimes hidden in the Dining Hall, and the 
excellent refreshments kindly prepared by Miss Williams, 
made a sufficient evening's entertainment for any good

A jolly evening, with a grand meal, enjoyable music 
and amusing speeches — that sums up the Football Dinner 
held on November 25th. It was attended by Bigside, the 
coaches, captains and vice-captains of Middleside and 
Littleside, and representatives of the Old Boys in the per- 
sons of Mr. Jock Spragge and Mr. Bill Beatty. A delicious 
meal had been provided by Miss Williams and during the 
courses the School orchestra rendered some of the current 
musical hits. 

After the King's health had been drunk, toasts were 
proposed to the coaches, the First team, and the subs. In 
paying tribute to the team, the Pleadmaster said that al- 
though it was not the best team that T.C.3. had had, it 
had always fought as hard as it could and there v/as nc 
doubt about the good, clean sportsmanship shown by every- 

After George Renison had thanked the team for their 
loyal support throughout the season, Mr. Scott electrified 
the company with a poem on the personalities of the team. 
(This classic of English literature will be found on another 
page.) Then various members of the team were called 
upon to discourse on subjects placed before them by a per- 
son who preferred to remain anonymous. Revelations of 
the early days of "Willie Full-stop Mood" and Percy 
Russel's information on games played in the Masters' 
Common Room with confiscated marbles were particularly 

The evening was brought to a close with everybody 
crowding round the piano to join in the new T.C.S. rugby 
song "Hold That Line". 



Twelve Junior and ten Senior entries met for the 
Championship contests at the Central Y.M.C.A. in Montreal 
on 23rd. October. T.C.S. sent a team composed of H. 
Armstrong, W. Mood and J. Warburton. 

This outstanding group was placed second in the Team 
championship, only 18 points behind the first, Glebe Col- 
legiate School of Ottawa. Four gold medals and six other 
medals were obtained. 

For the first time in the history of the School we have 
now a Dominion Junior all-round gym. champion, in the 
person of D. H. Armstrong. Mood was placed fourth and 
Warburton fifth. 

Standing obtained in the individual events was as 
follows: — 

Horizontal Bar: Armstrong second. 

Parallel Bars: Armstrong first; Mood third. 

Horse: Mood second; Armstrong third. 

Tumbling: Armstrong first. 

The team's instructor, Mr. Batt, deserves much credit, 
and we all congratulate him on the outcome of his wonder- 
ful work. 


We are deeply indebted to C. A. Hill of Ottawa for 
sending us such a beautiful lathe for the workshop. Its 
arrival was most opportune, as we felt we would have to 
get along without such an important bit of machinery. 
More boys than ever before seem to be learning the joy of 
wood working, and Mr. Hill's gift will be constantly put 
to good use. In addition to the lathe Mr. Hill sent a won- 
derful set of turning chisels, the whole forming most valu- 
able equipment. 



Mrs. Duncan McLaren very kindly sent a large box of 
athletic clothing of all descriptions which will help to out- 
fit many deserving boys. There is always a need for such 
equipment and we are grateful for the kind thought which 
prompted this gift. 

A number of pictures and medals which formerly be- 
longed to the late Herby Moore have been given to the 
School. The medals are of silver and have the School arms 
on one side but are blank on the other. It is a privilege 
to have this tangible link with such a splendid Old Boy as 
Herby Moore was.

I was catching the 5.15 from Prmces-Risborough. As 
usual, for it is a habit of mine, I arrived at the station fully 
quarter of an hour before the train was due. The platform, 
except for the occasional appearance of the old station- 
master, was entirely deserted, and I was very glad to hear 
the friendly whistle of my train, which a few minutes later 
puffed into the station. Having neither book nor magazine to 
beguile the tedium of my journey, I tried to find a compart- 
ment containing some interesting looking people, with whom 
I might pass the time in entertaining conversation. But as 
one carriage after another went by I realized that no such 
opportunity was going to present itself. In fact the train 
was apparently empty. I was already cursing my ill- 
fortune when I discovered, in the last compartment but one, 
the sole occupant of the train. 

I could not see his face, for it was hidden behind his 
paper in which he seemed to be deeply engrossed; but 
having no better choice, and reasoning that his company 
was better than none, I climbed into the carriage. It was 
one of those old-fashioned coaches that have no corridor 
connecting the compartments. I sat in one corner window- 
seat and my companion did not even bother to lower his 
paper to view a new arrival. Evidently he did not wish 
to talk. Anyway I was not going to force myself upon 


him, so I resigned myself to watching the ever changing 
country through my window, and soon from monotony and 
the rhythm of the train, I fell asleep. 

I awoke with a start. We had stopped at some small, 
out-of-the-way place where a few passengers were getting 
on. My companion, I noticed, was still in the same position 
reading his journal. Certainly he must either be very 
absorbed in some article, or be of that type of frigid Eng- 
lishman who will never speak to a stranger. At this point, 
however, my meditations were rudely interrupted. The 
mystery of the man behind the paper was forgotten as J 
helped into the carriage a middle-aged woman, who was 
endeavouring to open the door, while at the same time 
carrying numerous bundles and a basket with some animal 
inside. I helped her into the compartment together v/ith 
her parcels, and had begim to apologize for being so slov/, 
when I was cut short with such a flow of chatter, that I 
was at first astonished and then inclined to laugh. Here 
was all that I wanted and more. In five minutes I knew 
all about the village of Parkton, how Mrs. Dawson was 
going to have a baby, and much dreadful gossip. I do not 
know how long she could have kept it up, but as tactfully 
as possible I conveyed the extraordinary intelligence to her 
that I was not interested in Parkton, or the latest gossip. 
Indeed she went on talking for some time after I had ceased 
to pay any attention to what she was saying. 

Finally, though quite reluctantly, she relapsed into 
silence and my thoughts again drifted to our mysterious 
passenger. There he was, in exactly the same position and 
I began to wonder what kind of man he was. His shoes 
and clothes bespoke a fairly well-to-do personage, but his 
hands were what attracted my attention the most. They 
were dead white, in fact all the colour had gone out of 
them. I was almost tempted to go and take a look, but 
I thought better of it and contented myself with waiting 
until he had finished reading. 


The woman by this tmie had also become interested 
in him and was doing her best to find a new victim for her 
babble of conversation. A loud cough not having the 
desired effect, she opened her basket and took from it a pet 
black cat. Obviously the animal was intended to go and 
disturb the man in the corner. Slowly it walked towards 
him and with every step I became more curious. Who was 
this extraordinary person? The cat approached close to 
him, sinking its paws into the soft upholstery and purring 
pleasantly. Then it rubbed itself against the man's leg. 

Suddenly the animal jumped away, with tail standing 
erect and all its hair on end. The creature behaved as if 
it had become mad. The effect upon the woman was 
electrical. Rising quickly to her feet, almost hysterical, 
she fearfully took three paces to the end of the compart- 
ment and peered over the top of the paper. Then she 
glanced towards me and I saw such horror depicted on her 
face that I instinctively shivered. A second later the 
carriage was plunged into darkness, as we entered a tunnel. 

I could see nothing, above the rattle of the train T 
heard the heavy breathing of the woman. Cold fear came 
over me. It was the uncertainty of what would happen 
next. For all I knew there might be a lunatic over there 
on the other side of the carriage. It was a perfect night- 
mare. I gripped the seat tightly and sat very still, strain- 
ing my eyes to see what I could not. Then I felt something 
brush by me and I heard the compartment door open and 
felt a cold rush of air. 

The next moment the carriage was again flooded with 
light. The woman had disappeared and the open door told 
a tragic story. On the floor lay a crumpled newspaper 
and there in his comer sat a white-haired old man. He 
was staring straight at me, but his eyes were unseeing, 
sightless. He was dead, quite dead.

Debroy paused to rest his aching arms and uncon- 
sciously to lick the salty perspiration from his upper lip 
For this was work. 

He was in a peculiar position. For the last twenty 
minutes he had been climbing a "chimney", or a fault in an 
otherwise almost smooth face of rock. The chimney was 
a crack in the surface of the rock, perhaps two and a half 
feet across and two feet deep. Debroy was climbing it by 
bracing his back against one side, his hands and knees 
against the other. Needless to say, this method of ascent 
was both painstaking and painful. 

His position now, however, was little short of perilous. 
For the chinmey was slowly and steadily widening! With 
each upward movement he had to reach a little farther vdth 
his hands and knees to hold himself against the opposite 
side of the chimney. 

With an effort he craned his neck upward. Above 
him the chimney reached up another forty feet, gradually 
widening. Could he risk going on, or should he return 
and ascend the north face, wasting at least an hour and a 

Like a good mountaineer, Debroy decided in an instant. 
He would trust to luck and his own arm muscles. 

Cautiously he proceeded. At each step he reached 
just a little farther. If he could only last till he reached 
the top. 

Another awkward inch upward. He heard a slight 
tinkle and at the same time his left foot came free. Gently 
his body slipped about four inches, then stopped — momen- 

He was suddenly bathed with icy perspiration. For- 
gotten in an instant were all the years of mountaineering. 
Another slip — new heights of agony. Instinctively he 
closed his eyes. With all his might he held on. All his 
practice, his training, was forgotten. There remained only 



the instinctive dread of falling. Long, agonizing seconds 
crept past. He realized that he had stopped slipping. 

Suddenly his attack of nerves passed away. He opened 
his eyes, swore under his breath, and twisted his hairy 
wrist to glance at his watch. He was behind time. What 
was he doing, delaying in a chimney? Automatically his 
eyes searched for the next handhold. 

His will had reasserted itself.

I sat and read by a tallow light, 

In a house, on a cliff by the sea; 

And I found myself commanding a ship 

With a crew of twenty and three. 

Her name was the Bona Fortuna, and the time at break of 

Her mainmast was splintered asunder, her cargo half wash- 
ed away. 

Wind howl'd through her rigging 

And water covered her deck. 

Sailors were at the pumps, pitting 

Their strength to save the wreck. 

At the helm stood I with a heavy wheel, 

The sea's broil full in my face, 

I heard the shriek through spar and sail. 

If we were saved, 'twas by God's grace. 

Waves beat upon shingle as we neared a fateful shore, 

I thought of salty darkness, lost there for ever more. 

Then dawn broke, and sunlight crowned 

The glist'ning deck and sheet. 

The Good Fortune sailed safe into Pljnnouth sound. 

On over the briny deep. 

As I finished the tale, 

I heard the wind's call 

Echo up and down my chimney small, 

And then, as if enjoying a game, 

Out went my flickering candle flame. — J.S.H. 



It had all happened so suddenly; she had awakened 
that morning feeling supremely happy, full of the joy of 
living, and well contented with her small lot in life. She 
had eaten a good breakfast, and had left her small apart- 
ment, to go out into a glorious spring day on her way to 
her work. Her walk had been exhilarating, and she arrived 
at her destination with a light heart, and possessed of a 
sense of good-will to all. 

She had greeted the usual group of co-workers, and 
had set out to do her daily task in the best manner 
possible. One by one she had performed her routine duties, 
and then had sat at rest, feeling happy and contented. She 
had expected nothing out of the ordinary to happen, and 
when she received an urgent summons from the head office, 
she wondered what it could be. 

She listened attentively to her instructions, and it 
seemed to her that her task was not to be too difficult or 
extraordinary. She prepared for it as usual, doing the 
thousand and one odd things that must necessarily be done; 
her partner explained her task to her again, and they began 
to work. 

The complete operation did not take very long, but 
shortly after they had begun, she noticed that the case was 
developing in a most unusual fashion. She was kept busy 
for the duration of the job, but when it was accomplished, 
she knew that she had just seen something that very few 
people had ever seen, and had done something she had 
never done before, and very likely would never do again. 
It was a morning she would never forget. 

A verj' short space of time elapsed before she was 
again summoned to the head office, and when her new job 
was explained to her, she realized for the first time the real 
tragedy of the affair. Hitherto she had not considered 
how he would feel when he heard the news, but now she 
had a different view of the whole matter, for her new task 
was to break the news to him. 


The reason that she was chosen to do this was very 
simple, for she had been one of the only two to witness 
the actual deed, and furthermore, she was one of the most 
resourceful and diplomatic women on the staff. But al- 
though she had had to break the news before, this time it 
was different, and she did not know how she would ever 
do it. 

She wondered how he would react when he heard the 
news; would he collapse, would he be overcome with 
anxiety, or would he beam with pleasure and take the 
affair as being of benefit to him? She fervently hoped he 
would feel the latter way, but she felt nervous, and thought 
that she would never be able to tell him. 

She rehearsed to herself what she would say to him, 
and decided on something simple, yet which would at once 
convey all the facts to him. She finally bolstered up her 
courage, and left her room, going towards the small ante- 
room where she knew he would be. She found him pacing 
nervously up and down the floor, and v/hen he saw her he 
spun aroimd, and at once demanded. 

"What's happened? For goodness sake tell me what's 

She regained her composure, and determined to tell 
him all at once.

**Off the Record^^ 


Some football team has T.C.S.; 
Since now the season's passed we guess 
There are some folks would like to learn 
Who is it did the stellar turn, 

George Renison his team was picking 
While giving shows of great drop-kicking; 
Vice-captain Joe just watched the play go, 
He suffered sore with old lumbago. 

In tackles hard Kirk max. was there, 
Yet no one saw him turn a hair! 
And Percy Russel lost in fog 
Dropped three opponents like a log. 

Our Peacock One is lots of fun, in maths he's very coy; 
Forty-one, forty-two, hup! that calls for you, my boy. 
And in the thick of all is Wallace; 
His hair is tidy, that's his solace. 

Now all is well, for Fleming's there; 
I know he is, I heard his swear. 
And Seagram too v/ith his old sweater. 
He surely is some great go-getter. 

John Bull himself has naught on Hayes, 
He's simply grand in all the plays. 
And Beatty there is all the noise 
When Mood for forward pass decoys. 

Goodyear tires fail for speed when Birdie takes the air; 
They say we lost the U.C. game because he was a spare. 
And last we come to our full-back; he's very good at 

kick (er) ing, 
But when it comes to picking up, his thoughts are all in 




Poor Bobby Duggan made one plunge, 
He then retired to bottle and sponge; 
And Anthony Ketchum arrived too late, 
But g^ve him time, he'll crash the gate. 

Our worthy Head and Dixon too 
Gave good advice and training true; 
We only hope in future years 
That Ridley sheds some bitter tears. 

There's many a more to make the score 
Of those who should have mention; 
But I must drop and put full stop, 
Lest I get detention.

At Port Hope, October 30th. 

Touchdowns by Irwin, McCullough and Warburton 
helped to make up a score of 19 to 1 against Lakefield hi 
the first match of the season. 

The first half was closely contested, and the School 
had only slightly the better of the play. After Russel i. 
and Irwin had taken the ball down the field, Simpson was 
rouged by Peacock on a kick, and shortly after an incom- 
pleted forward pass by Lakefield, Simpson was again 
tackled behind the line. Lakefield rataliated by a rouge 
when Curtis failed to cross the line after taking the kick. 
This was all the scoring in the first half. 

The second half was more decidedly in favour of the 
School. Warburton opened the scoring when he took a 
Lakefield fumble over for a touchdown, which was convert- 
ed. Irwin and McCullough scored touchdowns also, but 
neither was converted. 

Irwin's kicking was a feature of the game. Simpson 
fought hard for Lakefield. 

The team — ^Renison, Irwin, McCullough, Hayes, Curtis, Seagram, 
Fleming, Russel i., W^allace, Peacock i., Mood, Beatty i., Kirk- 
patrick i; subs: Harvey, Swinton, Warburton, Kirkpatrick ii, Part- 
ridge, Russel ii., Warner, Savage, Turcot i., Turcot ii., Beairsto, 
Taylor i., Harstone, Langmuir. 


At Lakefield, November 2nd. 
So difficult to remember are the rules of Canadian 
rugby that the School team stood and watched while a 
Lakefield player came down on a kick-off and fell on the 
ball for a touchdown! That was the surprise highlight 
of this game, which was otherwise a well-fought struggle, 
with T.C.S. just a little bit too good for their opponents. 

In the early part of the game, McCullough, Russel and 
Fleming made yards frequently on bucks, but end-runs 
could not be used to any extent, because of the smallness 
of the field. The gains brought no score and the half 
ended with Lakefield leading by a single point, made on the 
last play before the interval. 

Early in the third quarter Fleming made a touchdown, 
unconverted. On the kick-off that followed, MacLean came 
down to fall on the ball and restore the Lakefield lead by 
the surprise touchdown. McCullough shortly tied up the 
score with a long kick, and a touchdown by Peacock, 
which was converted, put the School ahead at last. Before 
long a kick blocked by Fleming led to a safety-touch which 
increased the T.C.S. lead. 

In the last quarter, Wallace recovered a Lakefield 
fumble for another touchdown. The game ended with 
the School in a scoring position again after Mood had re- 
covered another fumble. 

Final score: T.C.S. 19; Lakefield 6. 

McCullough, Renison, Peacock and Fleming were the 
best performers for the School; Simpson was outstanding 
for Lakefield. 

The team — •Harstone, Renison, McCullough, Hayes Curtis, Sea- 
grsun, Russel i., Wallace, Peacock i., Fleming, Swinton, Mood; subs, 
Russel ii., Beatty i., Turcot i., Turcot ii., Warner, Langmiur, Part- 
ridge, Harvey, Taylor i., Savage, Beairsto. 


At Aurora, November 6th. 

The most closely-contested and exciting game of the 
season began when S.A.C. kicked off on the Aurora field. 
The scoring started when S.A.C. kicked the ball over the 
T.C.S. line and fell on it for a touchdown, which was not 
converted. Then after running a kick back for a good 
gain, Irwin i. took the ball over the S.A.C. line on a splendid 
end-run. He converted this to put the School one point 
ahead. Before long McCrae added a touchdown to the St. 
Andrew's score, and also the extra pomt. T.C.S. retaliated 
with a rouge. 

Towards the end of the half, Irwin kicked to the S.A.C. 
fourteen-yard line. The red-and-white players tried two 
bucks without making much ground and were forced to 
kick to centre. Irwin sent his punt over the line and 
Fleming and Beatty smothered the S.A.C. receiver for an- 
other single. 

Half-time score: T.C.S. 8; S.A.C. 11. 

The struggle grew tense in the third quarter when Mc- 
CuUough fell on a loose ball on the S.A.C. twenty-yard line. 
The School forced their way to the two-yard line, but the 
indomitable Scots succeeded in bucking and kicking back 
to centre field. A few minutes later a brilliant tackle by 
Renison set the S.A.C. team to work from their one-yard 
line. Again they fought the ball out, but when T.C.S. took 
possession once more, Irwin kicked over the line and Sea- 
gram went through fast to fall on the ball for a touch- 
down. This went unconverted, but the score was nov>^ 
T.C.S. 13, S.A.C. 11. 

The last quarter saw no change in the score. The 
T.C.S. tackling was consistently good and invaluable in 
defence. As the end of the game drew near S.A.C. tried 
a forward-passing attack, but Irwin's kicks kept the ball 
well down in the opponents' end of the field. 

Final score: T.C.S. 13; S.A.C. 11. 


Mitchell was the star of the S.A.C. team. Irwin's 
kicking and running were most effective for the School, to- 
gether with strong defence work by Renison and Beatty. 

The teams: 

T.C.S. — Renison, Irwin i, M'oCullooig'h, Hayes, Curtis, Seagram. 
Fleming, Russel i, Wlallace, Peacock, Mood, Beatty; subs., Harvey, 
Swinton, Kirkpatriok ii, Partridge, Ruissel ii, Warner, Taylor i, Har- 
stone, Turcot i, Turcot ii, Langmuir, Beairsto, Savage. 

S.A.C. — Seaton, Chriatie, O'Brien, McCrae, Kinley, Rent, Mac- 
intosh, Mitchell, Rogers; subs., Gordon, Knight, Grass, Arohi'bald, 
Senior, McOormick. 

At Port Hope, November 10th. 

This game may be summed up as a ding-dong, even 
struggle until the last quarter, when the slight superiority 
of the U.C.C. team asserted itself to give them the victory 
by one touchdown. 

In the first quarter, the scoring was limited to a single 
for each team. Renison made the School point by a tackle 
behind the U.C.C. line and McCarthy a similar rouge for 
the visitors. 

In the second quarter, Fleming fell on a loose ball and 
scored a touchdown, which was converted by Irwin's kick. 
Before very long U.C.C. lessened the lead when Grant kick- 
ed a fine placement goal to add three points. Half-time 
came with the score: T.C.S. 7, U.C.C. 4. 

The feature of the third quarter was a spectacular 
field goal by Grant, whose kicking throughout was very 
good, and whose ability to place the ball between the posts 
from about forty yards was something worth coming a 
long way to see. The School collected another single by 
a rouge and went into the last quarter with just that one 
point lead. 

In the last quarter, U.C.C. certainly had the best of 
the play. Lea made a touchdown, which Was converted, 
artd a rouge followed. Grant scored three points by yet an- 


other field goal, but T.C.S. could only add one more point, 
though the team went all out to the finish. 
Final score: T.C.S. 9, U.C.C. 17. 

T.C.S. — Renison, MoCullough. Irwin, Hayes, Curtis, Seagram. 
Wallace, Russel, Fleming, Peacock, Mood, Beatty. 

U.C.C. — MoOarthy, Lea, Deamess, Grant, Henderson, Huggins. 
Hastings, TurnbuU, Bedell, Bongard, Roberts. 

At Montreal, November 13th. 

Once more a Montreal game was played in a sea of 
mud, as a long spell of rain cleared up only just before play- 
ing time. If this goes on, our football stalwarts from 
Toronto and points west will come to believe that the 
great English climate myth really refers to the province of 
Quebec ! 

The game began at half past twelve, and from the 
kick-off the School team showed its superiority. D. Irwin 
scored no fewer than 21 points, with three touchdowns, two 
converts and four singles kicked. J. McCullough scored 
three touchodwns and Wallace one. E. Turcot also scored 
by kicking a single. 

Renison, Peacock, Wallace and Fleming were all con- 
spicuous for good bucking, in spite of the handicap of the 
muddy ground. The plays worked smoothly throughout, 
and Montreal spectators made special comment on the good 
tackling of the T.C.S. team. 

Final score: T.C.S. 42, L.C.C. 0. 

T.C.S. — Renison, McCullough, Irwin, Hayes, Curtis, Seagram, 
Pleaning, Riissel, Wallace, Peacock, Mood, Swinton; subs., Harvey.

The team was entertained to lunch at the Zeta Phi 
Fraternity and to dinner at Lower Canada College, and 
greatly enjoyed the hospitality. 


At Varsity Stadium, Toronto, November 20th. 

A faster and heavier Ridley team had all the best of 
this game and rolled up rather a large score, in spite of 
the School team putting up a strenuous fight to the last 

Very early in the first quarter Ridley made two 
singles with rouges. A thirty-yard gain in two plays by 
Hayes looked good, but a fumble on the end-run was 
dribbled down the field and Doherty fell on it for a touch- 
down. For a time the play was even, and Ridley were 
pressed down to their own end ; but just before the interval 
Hodder again kicked a rouge, 

Ridley opened the second quarter with a cut-back play 
which resulted in a touchdown. Then a series of end-runs 
and bucks brought them another touch when Gibbons went 
over. Neither was converted. McCullough rouged and a 
deadline kick by Hodder meant another two points on the 
Ridley score. Ashbum and Gibbons made up distance for 
Ridley after interference with a forward pass and an off- 
side had lost them a lot of ground, but the period ended 
with T.C.S, holding firm at the fifteen-yard line. 

In the third quarter the Ridley attack was held off for 
a time, though Hodder's kicking scored tv/o more singles. 
Then their machine began to work smoothly again and first 
Davidson went over for a touch, then Scandrett took a pass 
from Hodder for another. Hodder converted the first. 

The last quarter saw the teams still playing a hard, 
fast game, of which the most spectacular incident was a 
sixty-yard run by Hodder, balked of its score by Ridley 
being offside. Scandrett again received a pass and made a 
touchdown, which Hodder converted by running the ball 
over the line. Two more unconverted touchdowns were 
added when T.C.S. resorted to desperate forward passes, 
which were several times intercepted. 

Final score: Ridley 49, T.C.S. 0. 


Hodder, Scandrett and Gibson were outstanding for 
Ridley. The T.C.S. half line of Irwin, McCullough and 
Hayes played a hard game against odds, and Renison's 
tackling was, as usual, deadly. 

T.C.S.— Renison, Irwin, McCiilloug-h, Hayes, Ciirtis, Seagram.

The usual line-up of the First Team was: — fljdng wing, Renison;

insides, Russel i., Fleming; middles, Peacock i., Wallace; outsides, 
Mood, Beatty i. 


At Port Hope, October 29th. 

Ebccellent running by the S.A.C. halves kept the ball 
mainly in School territory during the first half, in spite 
of Irwin's good kicking. Twice Thomson was caught with 
the ball behind our line and St. Andrew's scored single 
points. Just when things began to look better on a T.C.S. 
attack, Peace intercepted a forward pass and ran 70 yards 
for a touchdown, which was not converted. 

In the second half, S.A.C. scored two more unconverted 
touchdowns. For one of them Hamilton picked up a T.C.S. 
fumble and ran fifty yards. The other, also by Hamilton, 
came on a plunge through the line. 

Thomson and McAvity made the best showing for the 
School; the best performers for S.A.C. were Peace and 
Hamilton, the latter's ball carrying on end-runs especially 
being a constant threat. 

Final score: S.A.C. 17; T.C.S. 0. 


At Aurora, November 6th. 

The game opened in lively fashion, Cartwright in- 
tercepting a pass shortly after the kick-off, but the only 
score in the first half was a single for S.A.C. when Waters 
was tackled behind the line. 

In the second half Thomson did some good bucking, 
but to no avail. St. Andrew's worked their way down to 
the School two-yard line but were held there and had to 
content themselves with another rouge. Soon afterwards 
Davis put them further ahead by kicking a field goal. Near 
the end of the game they succeeded in making a touchdown, 
leaving the final score, S.A.C. 10; T.C.S. 0. 

Thomson, Vipond and McAvity played well for the 
School. The outstanding figures on the S.A.C. side were 
Broome and Hamilton. 


At Upper Canada College, November 13th. 

Playing on a very muddy field, the School Third team 
kept the ball in the U.C.C. end most of the first quarter, 
Thomson i. finally going over for a touchdown. The second 
quarter saw some even play, and U.C.C. scored a single 
when a good kick by MacDonald led to Thomson being 

In the second half of the game, U.C.C. completed a 
number of forward passes, but fumbled frequently and 
failed to score. The last score of the game was a single 
kicked by Thomson. 

Thomson i. and Waters played an effective game for 
T.C.S. ; Grant and Corbett were the best of our opponents. 

Final score: T.C.S. 6, U.C.C. 1. 


At Port Hope, November 17th. 

It was a rather foggy and wet the day this game was 


played, but Pickering managed to show their speed. 

Pickering scored a touchdown soon after the game 
began. It was matched when Flock fell on a ball they 
fumbled behind the line, but that ended the School's scor- 
ing, whereas Pickering crossed the line four more times. 

Vipond and LeMesurier did some excellent tackling and 
Thomson i. made several very good runs, but their oppon- 
ents were just too good. 

Final score: Pickering 28, T.C.S. 5. 

House Match, November ZOth. 

When two factions of the same people fight against 
each other, the feeling is intense. Look at the Spanish 
war. Look at the Middleside house game. This titanic 
struggle was more heatedly and closely contested than any 
game of the Middleside season. 

The two houses were even more closely matched than 
the 6 to 1 score seems to indicate. Yards were made many 
times by both sides. 

In the first quarter. Brent House forced their way up 
the field to the Bethune one-yard line and Landry took the 
ball over for a touchdov/n. This was not converted, but 
Brent also scored a rouge, which made the score 6-0. 

Thomson ii. kicked a rouge for Bethune in the other- 
wise scoreless second quarter. 

In the second half there was no scoring at all. Bethune 
carried the ball to within a couple of yards of the Brent 
line, but were unable to muster the extra power to force 
it across, despite Cartwright's spectacular running. 

It was felt by both teams that the game was a couple 
of hours too short! 

Final score: Brent House 6, Bethune House 1. 




At Port Hope, October 20th. 

In this game all the breaks seemed to be for the School. 
This helped to pile up a bigger score than an even, hard- 
fought game really warranted. Cleland and Higginbotham 
were the outstanding performers. 

T.C.S. 28, Bowmanville 0. 

At Port Hope, October 39th. 

The Fifth team machine seemed to be in very smooth 
working order for this game and the visitors were quite un- 
able to stop its forward drive. Lambert, Cleland (2), 
Higginbotham, Finley and Duggan all made touchdowns, 
and Somerville added two points by rouges. S.A.C. fought 
hard all the way, but their only score was a rouge on a 
kick by Kilpatrick. 

Final score: T.C.S. 41, S.A.C. 1. 


At Aurora, November 6th. 

This was a close game, in which S.A.C. just edged out 
a win. The first half was all in favour of the School, as 
Somerville scored a rouge and two placements, while S.A.C. 
obtained only one rouge. 

After the half-time interval, St. Andrew's pressed 
hard and were presently rewarded by a touchdown. This 
was converted and a rouge followed. In the last quarter, 
Higgs made a touchdown for S.A.C, answered by Somer- 
ville with one for T.C.S. after taking a nice pass from Black. 
It was not converted, and the game ended with the score 
S.A.C. 13, T.C.S. 12. 

Higginbotham, Cleland and Somerville were the out- 
standing members of the T.C.S. team; Driver ii. and Hamp- 
son ii. were the mainstays of S.A.C.

At Bovvmanville, November 10th. 

Cleland scored a touchdown on the opening play, a 
forward pass by Black. After that excitement the play was 
so even that only one more point was scored, a single for 

T.C.S. 6, Bowmanville 1. 

At Port Hope, November 13th. 

It was a sea of mud rather than a field for this game. 
in which the Fifth team proved much too good for their 

In the first quarter Cleland made a touchdov/n, not 
converted. In the second he repeated the performance, 
this time with the extra point added, and Somerville kicked 
two singles. 

The feature of the third quarter was a touchdown by 
Higginbotham on a forty-yard run. The last period saw 
the Fifths run wild: Lambert, Langdon and Cleland all 
scored touchdowns, all converted and Somerville completed 
the score with another kick to the deadline. 

Final score: T.C.S. 37; Pickering 0. 

House Match, November 19th. 

In this, the most looked-forward-to ganie of the Little- 
side season, Brent House took the lead from the start, 
having all the regular Fifth team backfield, as well as other 
Fifth colours. 

The Brent scoring was done by Higginbotham, who 
made three touchdowns ; Cleland, who also crossed the line 
three times; and Cayley, who made two successful con- 

Somerville gave Bethune their only point on a kick. 

It was a well-fought game, with a liberal splattering 
of bumps, though the score was a bit one-sided. 

Final score: Brent House 32, Behtune House 1.

The Oxford Cup race was run for the forty-first time 
on November 29th. A cold, gray, wmdy day failed to affect 
the runners and the assembled School enjoyed the spectacle 
of a well-run race, with one of the closest finishes seen for 
many years. 

Hayes came in first, with Giffen hard on his heels and 
Warburton close behind. Russel i. and Kirkpatrick ii. ran 
fourth and fifth, but with the first three places all going to 
Bethune House there was no doubt about the destination 
of the Cup, and, when all the runners were in, Bethime 
proved indeed to have a margin of 17 points. 

The winner's time : 24 min. 50 sec. 

The remainder of the rimners, in order of finishing, 
were: Warner, Lambert, Higginbotham, Stokes, Langdon. 

There was the usual half -holiday to celebrate the race. 



Last year's Head Prefect, Jim Kerr, captained a team 
of five members of the Hamilton Squash Club who v/ere 
guests of the School on the week-end of November 27th- 
28th. A round-robin tournament had been arranged, each 
contest being for the best of three games. 

Play started at quarter to eight on the Saturday even- 
ing, and although the "Tigers" vowed they had had little 
practice, they shot into the lead by some excellent squash, 
and had collected 15 points to the School's 10 before time 
was called. 

When play was resumed on Sunday morning, it was 
evident that the School players were determined to make 
a fight of it. Landry showed the way by going through 
Sunday's play imdefeated. There was great excitement in 
the last two sets, which began with the School leading by 
one point. Langmuir made sure of the victory by winning 
two straight. 


Final scores: T.C.S. 13 sets, Hamilton S.C. 12. 

In total games, T.C.S. 29, H.S.C. 27. 

Landry won 4 (against Lawson, Kerr, Tully, Trimble) 
and lost 1 (to Smith) ; Peacock won 3 (Tully, Kerr, Smith), 
lost 2 (Lawson, Trimble); Irwin won 2 (Kerr, Tully), 
lost 3 (Lawson, Smith, Trimble) ; Langmuir won 2 (Smith. 
Tully) , lost 3 (Kerr, Trimble, Lawson) ; Cayley won 2 
(Kerr, Tully), lost 3 (Smith, Lawson, Trimble). 


Harold Martin, Montreal, defeated Campbell Rad- 
cliffe, Toronto, by a 3 to 1 game score to win the third 
annual Trinity College School invitation squash racquets 
tournament on December 5th. The scores of the games 
were 16-14, 15-12, 9-15, 16-15. Players from Montreal, 
Toronto, Hamilton, Kingston and Port Hope took part in 
the two-day tourney. 

In the preliminary rounds, Radcliffe defeated D. Wigle, 
Hamilton; F. Smye, Hamilton; Kenny, Toronto, and Hubert 
Martin, Hamilton. He played very clever squash to reach 
the finals and put up a fine game against Harold Martin. 
Martin defeated Langmuir, T.C.S.; Griffin, Hamilton, and 
Powis, Montreal. 

First Round — Tilden defeated Vivian; Seagram de- 
feated Cayley; Mickle defeated Peacock; Radcliffe defeated 
Wigle, all 3 to 0, and Lowndes defeated Ketchum 3 to 1. 

Second Round — Harold Martin defeated Langmuir, 
Griffin defeated Irwin; Seagram defeated Tilden; Hubert 
Martin defeated Mickle; Kenny defeated Lowndes; Rad- 
cliffe defeated Smye; Gunn defeated Landry, all 3 to 1. 

Third Round — Harold Martin defeated Griffin; Powis 
defeated Seagram, and Hubert Martin defeated Gunn, all 
3 to 1; Radcliffe defeated Kenny, 3 to 2. 

Semi-Finals — Harold Martin defeated Powis 3 to 1; 
Radcliffe defeated Hubert Martin, 3 to 1. 

Final— Martin defeated Radcliffe, 3 to 1. 

In the Consolation final, F. Smye beat B. Magee 3-0. 



With the Christmas number of the Record going to 
print we are glad to be able to enter some contributions, 
both literary and artistic, from the boys. There is con- 
siderable talent amongst them that could be used to great 
advantage in the development of their several abilities 
along this line. Therefore, as they read these lines, (and 
we hope some of them will), may they again be reminded 
to make an effort to produce something sufficiently worth- 
while to find its way into their own magazine. 

School Appointment 

J. D. K. Knapp to be Assistant Curator of the Library. 

The Junior School Choir 

The Choir has increased considerably in numbers this 
term; several of the new boys have voices of promise and 
are being "groomed for stardom". 

Some have already been included in the choir per- 
sonnel, others will take their places in the choir stalls as 
vacancies occur. 

At present everybody is practising strenuously for the 
annual Carol Service to be held on the last Sunday of term. 

These boys are members of the Choir: Joy i, Greene, 
Wilson, Campbell, Moorhouse, Knapp i, Knapp ii, IDignam, 
Morris, Irwin, Hope ii, Beament, Walcot, Britton, Waters, 
Lyall, McKinnon, Jones, Russel, Greer.

The term has been a very full one on the athletic side, 
soccer and rugby providing much interest, good competition 
and considerable exercise for the participants. 


In soccer the School team played a second game with 
Lakefield on Saturday, November 6th., obtaining a win by 
one goal to nothing. As may be imagined from the score, 
it was a close, hard fought game. Westell, Britton, Wood- 
side and Moorhouse turned in good performances for the 
School. The following comprised the team: Moorhouse 
(capt), Britton, Woodside, Westell, Wills, Reid, Hope ii.. 
Lloyd, Gibson, Vivian, Morris; linesman, Sim. 

Four inter-house soccer matches were also played 
during the week of November 13th-20th. The first of these 
games was a draw at 0-0. Orchard House won the re- 
maining three games by scores of 1-0, 2-0 and 1-0; Westell 
for Orchard scored all the goals. 

During the week of November 22nd. to 27th. the School 
was divided into six soccer teams and each of these teams 
played five games. The captains of the teams were as 
follows: Parr, Lambert, Lyall, Moorhouse, Isaacson, 
Greene. Parr's team emerged the victors by collecting 
eight points, which reminds the writer that they are now 
due a chocolate cake. 


The School rugby team played three games. The first 
at Lakefield on Friday, October 28th. resulted in a win for 
Lakefield by the score of 7-4. It was a close, well con- 
tested game, with Lakefield having slightly the better of 
things. The team: Parr (capt.), Greene, German, Higgins. 
Hope i, Warner, Campbell, Lambert, Lyall, Isaacson, Bea- 



ment, Knapp i, Walcot, Anderson, Wilson, Monro, Joy ii, 

The second game was also with Lakefield, played here 
on Wednesday, November 10th. This time the School 
team really got into their stride, taking the victory by 29- 
0. They played together very well and were not to be 
denied. The team: Parr (capt.), Hope i, Joy ii, Greene, 
Higgins, German, Warner, Campbell, Lambert, Isaacson, 
Knapp i, Lyall, Walcot, Anderson, Wilson, Beament, Mc- 

The third and last match was played here on Saturday, 
November 20th. Our guests were a team from Christ 
Church, Toronto. Despite a day on which the weather- 
man was anything but kind, the field was in fair* condition 
and the playing was quite good. Christ Church were a 
bit too powerful for the School and carried off the honours 
at 15-7. The team: Parr (capt.), Lyall, Knapp i, Isaac- 
son, Warner, Campbell, German, Higgins, Hope i, Joy ii, 
Greene, Beament, Wilson, Anderson, McKinnon, Huycke, 

W. Greene (J.S.)

House Matches 

Two House rugby games were also played during the 
week of November 22nd. to 27th. The matches were 
both won by Orchard House, by a narrow margin. In the 
first game the score was 5-0 in their favour and the second 
11-0. The matches were keenly contested and productive 
of some very good football. The teams: — Orchard House: 
Parr (capt.). Lambert, Walcot, Beament, Anderson, Greer. 
Warner, Huycke, Higgins, Isaacson, Wilson, Monro, Russel,

1936 to Warburton, Dignam.

The Hallowe'en party held on Saturday, October 30th. 
was, we think, most enjoyable. The costumes were excep- 
tionally good — so good they entered the "movies". The 
judges awarded first prize jointly to Warburton and Morris, 
taking their respective halves of a centaur. Second prize 
went to Greer as a baker. 

There was movie leave on three occasions, to see "One 
Hundred Men and a Girl", "Thunder Trail" and "Kmg 
Solomon's Mines". 

On Wednesday, December 1st., the School attended a 
display of coloured motion pictures of England, Ireland and 
some Coronation scenes given by Mr. Roy of Peterborough. 
They were unusually good and much enjoyed. 

Last year's J. S. boys who have gone up to the Senior 
School came over for dinner on Sunday, November 27th. 
We were very glad to see their familiar faces once again 
in our midst. 

We wish all our readers a Merry Christmas and a very 
happy holiday.

"Armistice Day Remembrance" 

"Poor fellow", muttered a British Tommy as one of 
his friends was shot in the chest. Just then, strangely 
enough, the firing ceased, and the wounded Tommy fell 
backwards, and his eyes closed as he said "Thank God, it 
has ended." His comrades then took off their hats and 
rather than sending up a great cheer, bowed their heads 
and dropped on their knees, thanking God for ending this 
horrible slaughter, and thinking of the millions who had 
died in action, leaving only a trail of grief behind them. 

The enemy, hearing no shout from the British, also 
kept quiet, and no noise could be heard, save the gentle 
breeze on that great shell-swept battlefield called the 
Western Front. It seemed wonderful how all the noise 
stopped at once and gradually the echoes died away. It 
was a great moment in the history of Europe, the eleventh 
hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of the year 

Perhaps that is the reason why Armistice is celebrated 
in the manner of silence, preferable to fireworks and feast- 

Many of the veterans who were wounded or blinded 
got together and made poppies on the first anniversary. 
These poppies are still sold everywhere throughout the 
Empire, and they bring in an immense fund which greatly 
helps the veterans, who now, in 1937, are becoming less 
numerous after nineteen years. A man who was a boy 
of nineteen years then is now thirty-eight, which is by no 
means young. There are however still a large number, 
but not nearly so many as have died owing to shell shock 
and other injuries. 

Poor fellows. L.H.

Letter to Old Boys 

Dear Old Boys, 

A few days ago we were playing soccer on greenish 
brown fields, with no sign of winter, but to-day snow lies 
over the countryside, and the lake has that cold, slate 
colour which bespeaks winter. So quickly do the seasons 
change, and so quickly, too, does the colour of one year 
run into that of another. 

It seems only a very short time ago that I was telling 
you of the extraordinarily generous offer which had been 
made to the School, and of the responsibility which this 
offer had put on the shoulders of those who were cognisant 
of the crisis facing us. The year nineteen hundred and 
thirty-seven will go down in the history of T.C.S. as the 
year in which the friends of the School rose magnificently 
to the occasion, and removed the incubus of debt which was 
not 30 slowly strangling us. We have, on one or two 
occasions, tried to express our gratitude for this truly 
great expression of faith in the School, but no mere words 
can reflect the depth of our feeling. Such an emotion is 
often made more clear by contrast, and most of us can 
imagine the lasting shock it would have been to us if we 
had been forced to close the School, and terminate that 
association which has meant so much to over three 
thousand of our best citizens, and for whose welfare many 
men of exceptional attainments have given their verv life 


blood. It would have been little short of a catastrophe, 
and the memory of it would have troubled us for the rest 
of our lives. 

Now that dire possibility, at one time a horrid prob- 
ability, is well behind us, and the School is once again on 
sure financial foundations, eager to show more clearly 
than ever before that it is worthy of the confidence which 
our benefactors have bestowed in us. 

Never can we forget those v/ho have plucked us out of 
the mire and clay of debt. There is first the unnamed 
donor, v/hose offer, so exceedingly thoughtful and generous, 
inspired the appeal and gave vigorous impetus to it. There 
are all the members of the Governmg Body, who, without 
exception, took it upon themselves to see that the response 
would not be in vain ; there is the Bank of Toronto, whose 
officers generously remitted a very large sum of interest 
payments which we owed; and there are ail those eighty 
subscribers to the appeal who met the conditions of the 
original offer and saved the School. As a rule it is invidious 
to mention names, but in this case there are four men, in 
addition to the original donor, whose continued efforts on 
behalf of the School can never be fully acknowledged. Mr. 
R. C. H. Cassels, Mr. R. P. Jellett, Mr. G. B. Strathy and 
Mr. S. S. DuMoulin led the attack in which they v/ere so 
ably supported by all the other members of the Governing 
Body. Mr. Cassels has just lately retired from the arduous 
duties of Secretary of the Governing Body. During the 
seven years he held this office, the welfare of the School 
has been his chief concern, and those close to him know how 
extraordinarily well he has met the stupendous problems 
which have faced him one after another. Despite the claims 
on his time which a leading place in his profession made 
on him, he always gave minute attention to the affairs of 
the School. No one could fail to admire his utter selfless- 
ness, his keenness, capability, and efficiency; his amazing 
capacity for hard work, and his courageous honesty. There 
are very few men of his mould, and the School has been 


exceptionally fortunate to have had his guidance during 
these critical years. It has often occurred to me that it 
would be a wonderful thing for the country if men like Mr. 
Cassels would devote themselves to public life; I cannot 
help feeling deeply regretful that the nation at large has 
not benefitted, as the School has, from the service of his 
rare talents. Be that as it may, we shall ever be conscious 
of the debt we owe him, certain that the example of his 
unselfish interest will be of lasting benefit to his old School. 

This year we have all been most encouraged by the 
upswing in our numbers, and a large part of the credit for 
this improvement must lie with you, our Old Boys. We 
have just thirty-nine more boys enrolled than we had at 
this time last year, bringing our total numbers to 179. 
Sixty-six new boys entered the School this autumn, the 
largest number in our history to enter at one time. The 
Junior School is again a completely separate entity, with 
an enrollment of 51 as compared with twenty-three two 
years ago. We are still some thirty short of our capacity, 
but the picture has certainly changed for the better, and 
for the first time in many years we are expecting to make 
ends meet financially. 

The results of the examinations written last June were 
highly satisfactory; the percentage of failures v/as lower 
than it has been for many years and the percentage of 
honours was higher. We are hoping that this year we 
shall have even better results. 

I remember speaking to you a year ago about the 
backwardness of this country in connection with the use of 
films in education. "The Life of Emile Zola" has brought 
home to many of us the important place a really good film 
should take m our educational system. Just lately a re- 
port has been issued by the Dominion Bureau of Statistics 
setting forth the fact that there are some four times as 
many motion picture projectors per capita in the schools 
of the United States as there are in Canada, and some eight 
times as many in France. There are numerous places in 


this country where educational films may be obtained, but 
it would seem as if there were two serious drawbacks pre- 
venting their wider use: our teachers are not yet alive to 
the tremendous value of good films as aids to the presenta- 
tion of such subjects as history, science, geography, and 
English; and secondly, the production and distribution of 
such films is haphazard and needs to be put in the hands 
of an educational committee. We are hoping, beginning 
next term, to use films in classroom work much more than 
we have, but we shall be handicapped by the scarcity of 
proper material. It seems to me that this is a problem 
pressing for attention by the proper authorities. 

This term we have been experimenting with classes 
twice the ordinary length, an hour and a half instead of 
three quarters of an hour. It was felt that the added 
time would enable masters to carry on teaching, discussion, 
reading and supervised study without the rush to finish be- 
fore the bell. The experiment seems to have worked satis- 
factorily with groups of more serious-minded boys, but 
younger, less academic lads have found the period too long. 
With some adjustment, the plan may prove very valuable. 

We are running more sets in various subjects than ever 
before, so that a boy has an opportunity to progress in his 
good subjects instead of having to mark time because of 
his poor standing in other subjects. Such a system requires 
a large staff, and we are fortunate to be able to enjoy the 
benefits of it. 

Committees of masters have been formed to discuss 
the teaching of all the matriculation subjects and already 
some beneficial results have been obtained. It is well for 
schoolmasters to remember that they belong to a profession 
in which nothing is static, and that they must be keenly 
alert to learn the latest developments and try to incor- 
porate in their own classes any ideas which seem to be of 
value. In this connection Dr. W. E. Blatz, of the University 
of Toronto, widely known as a protagonist of progressive 
education, came down to the School and spoke to the staff 





about the aims and methods of the new teaching. Many 
who were present came feeling rather prejudiced against 
some aspects of the new school of thought, but Dr. Blatz 
made an indelible impression by his well reasoned and tell- 
ing remarks. Later a most stimulating discussion took 
place. All this tends to keep our schoolmaster minds less 
moss covered than some people like to think they are. 

In athletics, though we have not won any so-called 
Team Championships during the last year, we have, I 
believe, kept well up to standard. In hockey and basket- 
ball last winter, our boys played well and were always in 
the running in their games. In cricket we very nearly won 
all our school matches, having one of the best teams for 
years. Only Ridley beat us, and without in the least dis- 
counting their well-earned victory, the tables might easily 
have been turned. This year our football team played 
some extremely good games and faltered in others, the 
usual result when inexperienced boys are playing in key 
positions. We were undoubtedly short of material, and the 
fact that we won four and lost two of our School games 
speaks well for the spirit of the team. 

I was somewhat surprised to hear adverse criticism 
of the athletics at the School from some of the Old Boys 
at the Toronto dinner. True we were soundly beaten by 
our old friends and rivals from St. Catharines, but one de- 
feat, even by such a score, does not mean that we are fad- 
ing out of the picture. Four years ago we suffered even 
a worse defeat, and came back the following year to win 
all our games. In any event, victories alone are no criterion 
of the state of athletics in a school. I am not at all sure 
that a long series of victories might not have a worse effect 
on the character of the individual athlete than a long series 
of defeats. Of course we all like to win occasionally, but 
it is wrong to think that a defeat spells disaster in any way 
at all. Some of you feel that we should take promising 
lads in the Junior School or the lower part of the Senior 
School and groom them consistently for "future grid 


greats", as the sporting writers would have it. That may 
be true if we are to have continuously victorious teams, but 
have you considered the probable effect on the lads con- 
cerned? Would not they begin to think that the world is 
bounded by footballs? I know you do not like to see your 
School teams trampled on, and we shall do our best to pre- 
vent that, but do not ask us to make games the be all and 
end all of our existence ; it is very easy to do it. Incident- 
ally, during the past five seasons our first football teams 
have won 13 Little Big Four games, tied 1, and lost 6. 

For the first time in our history the School has this 
year won the Dominion Junior Gymnastics Championship. 
Mr. Hadley Armstrong, who has returned this year to assist 
with athletics, is probably the best gymnast the School has 
ever had, and he deserves well his new title. 

The Chapel services this term have been greatly en- 
riched by the addition of a new electric wave organ, most 
generously given by Mr. Norman Seagram. For seven 
years we had to use a piano, and now we seem to have re- 
captured something of the beauty which many of us 
associate with the old Chapel. 

The Ladies' Guild has most kindly remodelled a class- 
room as a repository for the Carnegie pictures and books 
and as an additional reading room. Already it has proven 
its worth, and drawn forth much admiration. Again we 
are indebted to the Guild for their tireless interest in us. 

The central branch of the Old Boys' Association has 
been functioning smoothly for over a year now, and it is 
most gratifying to see the numbers of those enrolled in- 
creasing steadily, and new branches being formed in 
Montreal and Hamilton. The future of the School depends 
so much on the interest of the Old Boys and the strength 
of our associations. T.C.S. is indeed fortunate to have 
such a loyal and devoted body of men behind it. 

Come and visit us whenever you can. 

With every good wish. 

Yours sincerely, 




Larger numbers and shorter speeches were features 
of the Toronto Annual Dinner this year making it definitely 
a better affair than most of its long line of pleasant pre- 

Nearly a hundred and fifty Old Boys of every vintage 
gathered at the King Edward Hotel on the evening of 
December 3rd and participated in an hour of chit-chat 
bedlam before the dinner itself began. 

Buck Pierce had remained up to form with his attrac- 
tive menu cards, and everything had been very well 
arranged by the dinner committee. 

Brookes Gossage, President of the Toronto Branch, 
first spoke of the wonderful work which the Governing 
Body had done for the School. He then introduced the first 
speaker, Mr. S. S. DuMoulin, President of the Old Boys' 
Association; and explained that a time limit of three 
minutes had been set on each speech. 

Mr. DuMoulin, in proposing a toast to the School, spoke 
briefly of the three aims that a school should strive to keep 
before it, scholastic attainment, proficiency in sports, and 
character building. 

The Headmaster, replying to the toast to the School, 
first called for a silent toast to the memory of Mr. Dudley 
Dawson. He spoke of the School's present happy position 
in contrast to the recent crisis it had gone through, and 
stressed the deep debt of gratitude that it owed to the re- 
tiring Secretary of the Governing Body, Mr. R. C. H. 
Cassels, and to the anonymous donor of the $125,000 that 
had started the campaign. The company assembled rose 
and drank the health of the School's generous benefactor, 
lustily singing "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow." 

The Chairman next called upon Col. J. W. Langmuir, 
the newly elected secretary of the Board of Governors, who 
spoke further of the work of Mr. Cassels, and made a brief 
appeal to the Old Boys to help raise the numbers of the 
School slightly, to a solid basis. 


Following the dinner J. D. Ketchum presided at the 
piano and a large group of Old Boys joined enthusiastically 
in the singing of School songs, hymns, and Gilbert and 
Sullivan selections. 

Old Boys' Tie 

Various designs for an Old Boys' tie were recently sub- 
mitted to representatives of the Toronto, Montreal and 
Hamilton Branches, and the Central Association, and no 
difficulty was experienced in deciding upon which one 
should be approved as the official Old Boys' tie. The tie 
that was the almost unanimous choice of the Committee is 
bold and attractive in design — maroon background with 
pairs of black stripes separated by a narrow white stripe 
to set it off; it is made of good quality Irish poplin, to sell 
at $1.50. The Executive Committee at its last meeting had 
an order placed for thirteen dozen of these ties, which 
should be available for purchase about the beginning of 
February. A further notice will appear in the February 
number of the Record stating where they may be had. 

Old Boys' Directory 

It was decided at the last Executive Committee meet- 
ing to proceed with the publication of an Old Boys' Direc- 
tory. Instead of publishing it in separate form, as here- 
tofore, it will come out in alphabetical instalments as a 
supplement to the Record, over a two-year period com- 
mencing next summer, or as soon as the necessary informa- 
tion can be collected. It is to be the endeavour of the 
Association to locate as many of the 3300 Old Boys that 
have passed through the School as possible, and the co- 
operation of all Old Boys in this important and very difficult 
task will shortly be solicited. 

The Directory will probably have two sections, the first 
alphabetically arranged, giving the name, address, what 



years at the School, and present occupation (if any) of 
each Old Boy; the second section will be regionally ar- 
ranged, by cities, provinces, or foreign countries. The 
Directory will be kept up to date so far as is possible by 
means of publishing supplements to it in the Record. 

Montreal and Hamilton Branches 

Branch inauguration dinners will be held in Montreal 
and Hamilton in January. Particulars will be circulated 
locally before that date, and an account of them will ap- 
pear in the next Record. 


As long as the supply lasts these will be mailed to any ad- 
dress on receipt of 55c. Five pictures of the School and 
one of Dr. Orchard are included this year. Please address 
your orders to the Bursar.

"A Very Great Canadian" was the title of an address 
by Mr. Leonard Brockington, Chairman of the Canadian 
Broadcasting Commission, to the Women's Canadian Club 
of Toronto recently. He was speaking of Sir William 
Osier (T.C.S. 1866-67), whom he considered one of the two 
best educated men who had lived in the Anglo-Saxon world 
during the last three decades. The other was Thomas 
Huxley. "They combined", Mr. Brockington said, "a 
knowledge of literature and science — a love of scientific 
truth and of literary grace." 

It was Osier who said: "I will never approach the 
temple of science in the spirit of the money-changer," and 
he believed and practised what he preached. 

Mr. Brockington recalled the influence exerted by 


Osier's teachers upon him, and commented: "It is one of 
the tragedies of Canada that we have not yet honoured the 
school teacher. So much of the culture of Canada is 
derived from the irradiating personalities of the gifted men 
and women who taught in this Province when it was 

It was Sir William Osier who inspired John D. Rocke- 
feller to establish the Rockefeller Foundation. The story 
retold by Mr. Brockington is a remarkable one. Travelling 
in the Canadian West, Rockefeller chanced upon a copy of 
a book written by Osier. Inspired by it, he wrote that 
night to the author, then at Johns Hopkins Hospital, offer- 
ing any assistance in his power. That letter reached its 
destination opportunely, for it was the day Johns Hopkins 
burned down, and Osier had an urgent request ready for 
his answer. 

From that contact of Rockefeller with the Ontario 
doctor, Mr. Brockington explained, had come the steady 
stream of millions of dollars for educational and research 

It has become a habit for the Christmas number of the 
Record to report successes by the Clelands (Douglas '28- 
'30, Marshall '26-'30) in the jumping events of the New 
York Horse Show. This year, nevertheless, the report is 
real news, something more spectacular than ever before. 

The Canadian Army team won the International 
Military Team jumping championship, against determined 
competition from the representatives of the United States, 
the Irish Free State, Belgium and the Netherlands. 

That was not all. Before that final event, the Cana- 
dian officers had won the International Low School 
Challenge Trophy, thus coming away with two of the 
major military trophies of the great horse show. 

In these four officers, Lieut.-Col. R. S. Timmins, Capt. 
Stuart Bate, Lieut. Marshall Cleland and Lieut. Douglas 
Cleland, Canada has a team to be proud of, and the School 


is especially proud that two of them figure on the rolls 
of T.C.S. 

Looking through the newspaper clippings, we find such 
items as: "New York, Nov. 3rd. In the first of the three- 
day competition, the Canadians sent out their leaders, Capt. 
Stuart Bate and 25-year-old Lieut. Marshall Cleland to tie 
with the Belgians for runner-up honours 

Nov. 7th. In the international military jumper stake 
.... sixth place went to Lieut. Douglas Cleland, who was 

up on Flying Poet Lieut. Marshall Cleland warmed up 

his veteran Irish-bred mare, Roxana, for the more import- 
ant military event that followed by finishing third in the 

Nov. 9th. Surviving two jump-off s, Lieut. Marshall 
Cleland piloted a 23-year-old Squire to victory in the inter- 
national military special challenge trophy competition to 
give the Canadian army its second major victory . . . Lieut. 
Douglas Cleland gave a good performance with Flying 
Poet .... Earlier, Marshall Cleland carried off the honours 
in the Brooks-Bright Foundation Cup with Margot from 
the Cleland stables and finished third with the Army team's 
Flying Poet. Squire, ridden by Lieut. Douglas Cleland 
was second in the event. 

Nov. 10th. Climaxing their most successful invasion 
of the National Horse Show, the Canadian army officers 
tonight won the coveted international military team jump- 
ing championship before a capacity crowd of more than 
15,000 in Madison Square Garden. 

Paced by the fine performance of Lieut. Marshall 
Cleland on Roxana, the Canadians compiled the low 
aggregate of 12 faults to turn back the officers and picked 
mounts of the United States, Iiish Free State, Belgium and 
the Netherlands." 

Jim Kerr brought a team from the Hamilton Squash 
Club to play the School. Jim seems to be enjoying his 
work with the Bell Telephone Co. 


Mr. and Mrs. F. J. Morris and Mrs. S. L. Miller had 
dinner in Hall on Wednesday, December 1st. Mr. Morris 
was a master here from 1900-1910 and has lately retired 
from the staff of the Peterborough Collegiate. Mrs. Miller's 
late husband was a colleague of Mr. Morris's and it was in 
his memory that a group of Old Boys made such a valuable 
contribution to the Library. Mrs. MUler is now living in 

Mr. Morris has sent the Headmaster a print of the 
Tablet erected in the old Chapel to the memory of the boys 
who were killed in the South African War. We hope to 
reproduce this some day in the new Chapel.

It was good to see the three Martins at the School for 
the squash tournament when Harold won the Argue Mar- 
tin trophy for the third time in a row. 

Argue Martin began playing tournament squash in 
1920; he won the Canadian Championship in 1930, 1931, 
1933 and was runner up on three previous occasions. He 
won the Ontario Championship in 1933, and he has repre- 
sented Canada against England and the United States 
annually since 1923. No other Canadian has such a dis- 
tinguished record in squash rackets, and the anonymous 
Old Boy donors have recognized his achievement most 
fittingly in presenting this trophy to his old School. The 
Martin family have made a name for themselves in Squa^ 
rackets, Hubert having won the Canadian Championship 
once and the Ontario Championship on several occasions, 
being the present holder, and Harold Martin has won the 
Province of Quebec Championship on nimierous occasions 
and was runner up for the Canadian Championship. AU 
these learnt the game at T.C.S. 


A letter from Dr. Orchard says that he and Mrs.

Moriteiumas Day 

Chocolate was a favoured beverage 

IONG before Cortez set out on his 
J first voyage of discovery, chocolate 
or chocolatl — as it was called — was the 
national drink of the Aztecs, their 
Emperor, Montezuma is said to have 
taken no other beverage. So highly 
did the Aztecs esteem chocolate that 
they valued the cocoa bean above gold. 
Introduced by Hernando Cortez to 
Spain in 1526, by the end of the 17th 
century chocolate was the aristocratic 
beverage of Europe. It was then that 
chocolate houses were first established. 

The best cocoa beans are grown in 
the equatorial zones in the West 
Indies, West Africa, Ceylon and other 
countries. Many are the processes of 
refinement that have been discovered 
since chocolate was first introduced. 
Because Neilson's employ the most 
modem machinery and use only the 
finest cocoa beans, Neilson's chocolate 
is so smooth, so rich, so delightful in 
flavour and matcliless perfection that 
it is indeed the best chocolate made. 

Get a bar of Neilson's lersey Milk Chocolate, bite into it and 
let it melt in your mouth — truly it is — "the food of the Qods."

It is often said that schools to-day are over- 
emphasizing athletics. While we agree that there is an 
over-emphasis on sport, we think it is true of the whole 
world, rather than schools alone. 

In school, though, we are too inclined to judge a boy 
by his athletic prowess. It is necessary to be an athlete 
of some ability before one can consider himself as of any 
importance in a school. The cases in which this is not 
true are decidedly in the minority. Quite rightly, many 
will say; few, other than the athletes, ever do really dis- 
tinguish themselves in school life. However, this is simply 
because we have become so "sports-minded" that distinc- 
tion in other fields goes relatively unappreciated in a school. 

How we glorify the athlete in the world to-day! A 
professional boxer may be paid as much in one night as 
most of our scientists, our medical research workers, might 
earn in two years. Some people will say that professional 
athletes run risks of rviined health or death. So do the 
scientists: consider the Curies, who laboured for years in 
a little wooden shack, often in iU health, to produce some- 
thing which was in the end to help immeasurably in the 


alleviation of human suffering, but at the price of pain and 
death to those who first worked with it. The publicity 
and glor>" which follows the career of an athlete far 
exceeds that which accompanies the discovery of a life- 
giving serum. True, the fame of an athlete may not be 
in the end as lasting as that of a scientist; but of what 
use to a man is fame, if it comes only after he is dead? 

Similarly, the publicity which the winner of a scholar- 
ship from a school may obtain does not compare with that 
which a championship football team acquires. We all 
hold up the football team as an example to show how fine 
our school is. Why therefore do we not hold up the 
scholarship winner as another example? 

It may be said that the scholarship v/inner does not 
represent the academic condition of the school as a whole, 
but the football team is made up only of the twelve best 
players and does not exemplify the athletic average stand- 
ing of the school either, any more than national best 
athletes show how well a sport is being played in a country. 
Sport gives an arena for individuals, an arena where the 
best athletes of a school or a nation may show their mettle. 

This sport-mindedness is also illustrated by the fact 
that we compare our schools almost solely on the basis of 
their athletic standing, paying little or no attention to any 
other form of distinction. 

Our plea is not by any means to drop athletics and 
substitute something else. It is just a suggestion that we 
remember that one can, if he wishes, help his school in 
many other less glorified ways. — C.O.L. 

We extend our congratulations to the Headmaster, 
who has been elected President of tlie Canadian "Head- 
masters' Conference", the Association of Heads of Cana- 
dian Private Schools. The next annual meeting i,f the 
Association is to be held at the School, probably during 
the Christmas holidays. 



Master John Anthony Cheyne Ketchum was baptized 
by Bishop Renison in the Chapel on December 12th. 

After the ceremony, the Bishop gave a short address 
on the Christmas story and how God loved little children. 
It was a great pleasure and privilege to have Bishop 
Renison with us on this occasion and his well chosen re- 
marks made a deep impression. 

Sunday, December 19th. The Headmaster gave an im- 
pressive address in the morning, telling about the lives of 
Mr. Ramsay MacDonald and Canon Dick Sheppard, and 
how they kept to one ideal throughout their lives. 


In the afternoon of the same day, the Carol Service 
was held. The lessons were read by Dignam of the Junior 
School, Warburton, Renison, Mr. Yates, Mr. Morris, and 
the Headmaster. 

The Chapel was filled, as many parents were present. 

Mr. Cohu is to be highly complimented on the remark- 
ably good performance of the choir at this service. 

The order of service was: — 

Processional Hymn: "Hark the Herald Angels Sing." 

First Reading: Dignam (Junior School) 

Carol: "Joseph and the Angel." (The Choir) 

Second Readmg. Warburton (Seniors) 

Carol: "Whence Art Thou, My Maiden?" (The Choir) 

Hymn: "Once in Royal David's City." 

Carol: "Good King Wenceslas." (Congregation) 

Third Reading: Renison (Head Prefect) 


Carol: "Love Came Down at Christmas." (Junior Choir) 

Fourth Reading: Mr. Yates. 

Carol: 'The First Nowell." (Congregation) 

Carol: '"Twas in the Moon of Winter Time." (The Choir) 

(16th Century Huron Indian Carol) 
Fifth Reading: Mr. Morris. 

Carol: "Whence Is That Goodly Fragrance." (Junior Choir) 
Sixth Reading: The Headmaster. 

Carol: "When the Sun Had Sunk to Rest." (The Choir) 
OflFertory Hymn: "Adeste Fideles." 
Prayers. The Blessing. 

Recessional Hymn: "While Shepherds Watched." 

Sunday, January 16th. The Chaplain preached in 
Chapel. He spoke to the School of how a man who thinks 
himself a Christian because he goes to church and com- 
munion may be guilty of heresy because he does not put 
religion into his daily life. 

Simday, January 23rd. The Rev. W. G. Walton, Sec- 
retary of the Bible and Prayer Book Society, preached in 
Chapel. Mr. Walton, who has spent thirty-five years in 
Ungava, told us something of his efforts to have the 
Dominion Government bring a herd of caribou across Can- 
ada to feed his starving Indians. 

Sunday, January 30th. The Rev. J.C. Clough, of Port 
Perry, preached in Chapel. In his sermon he urged us to 
consider how much better, if everyone tried to do some 
one little thing for his or her own generation, the world 
would be. 

Sunday, February 6th. The Rev. R. B. McElheran, 
Principal of Wycliffe College, Toronto, preached in Chapel. 
He pointed out that we were trustees of the best things in 
life, and must always strive to preserve them, and add to

Gifts to the School 

Dr. Gilbert Bagnani, who is a grandson of the late Dr. 
Dewar, formerly the School doctor, has given us a colored, 
framed picture of the old School, which we are delighted 
to have. He also gave us several smaller pictures of the 
buildings previous to 1895. 

The Misses Philp called on the Headmaster last month 
and presented him with the old Tuck register containing 
the names of several hundred Old Boys. This will make 
a valuable addition to the School archives and doubtless 
will bring pleasant memories to numbers of Old Boys of 
the luscious dishes of cake and cream and pie and cream 
and sausage rolls which the Misses Philp used to dispense 
with such good taste. 

Mrs. Harry Patterson, who reconstructed the hospital 
in memory of her husband, and has made herself chiefly 
responsible for its upkeep, has lately added a beautiful 
radio, and new shades throughout the building to her 
many previous gifts. The radio will do much to keep up 
the spirits of the convalescents, and the shades to improve 
the appearance of the rooms; we are deeply grateful for 
these further evidences of Mrs. Patterson's generous in- 
terest in the School. 

* * * * * 

The Ladies' Guild have again been most generous to 
us. They have completed the Carnegie Room by sending 
us lovely curtains for the windows and a set to hide the 
blackboard, and they have given two beautiful carpets to 


the Masters' Common Room. The Common Room was 
painted during the Christmas holidays, but the old carpets 
had suffered from the constant heavy magisterial tread, 
and spoilt the appearance of the room. Now there is a 
certain luxury and richness to the room, which is a welcome 
relief to classroom-frayed nervous systems. We shall 
ever be grateful to the Guild for their thoughtfulness and 

We Say Good-bye to 

Miss Williams, who has ably performed the duties of 
dietitian during the last four terms. To maintain the 
standard of day to day meals and on special occasions turn 
out such feasts as Miss Williams provided is no light task, 
but it was always well performed. We wish Miss Williams 
every good fortune in her new sphere. 

and to 

Mr. Rigby, bursar in recent years. A bursar's work 
is done behind the scenes, so far as the School is concerned, 
but everyone knew Mr. Rigby had always a cheery word 
for those who had occasion to visit his office, and that 
he came out of it often to give active and valuable help in 
our dramatic productions. ,We shall miss his cheery 
presence. To him also we wish the best of luck in the 

A Welcome Retuni 

After an absence of four terms, Mrs. Wright has re- 
turned to the School to resume the task of seeing that 
none of us goes hungry. The original coming of Mrs. 
Wright began a new era in the T.C.S. Dining Hall, and 
we know by experience that with her in the dietitian's 
office again our meals will continue to be all that they 
should be. We are very glad indeed to welcome her back. 


Visit of Grey Owl 

Beavers never appear in Hollywood movies. Since 
the visit of Grey Owl we know why; they would inevitably 
steal the show and push any mere human actors into the 

There were other actors in the pictures Grey Owl 
showed us, including himself and a grizzly at remarkably 
close quarters, but they did not have a chance against 
Jellyroll and Rawhide, the surprisingly domesticated beaver 
comedians who share the cabin in Saskatchewan, a hundred 
miles from civilization. 

Grey Owl talked to the School, and to many friends 
invited to share the treat, in the Capitol Theatre on January 
25th. When the spotlight fell on that tall figure resplend- 
ent in traditional Indian costume, every imagination was 
struck by the appearance of this very famous Canadian, 
and his talk had an appeal to match. 

In that oddly quiet voice that carries so well through 
a hall, he told us of his work with and for the wild life 
of Canada, and of his plans to better the lot of the 
Indians. His two main projects are interlinked: the wild 
life needs conservation, and the Indians are the people to 
employ as game and fire wardens, "for, after all, who is 
better qualified than an Indian to look after wild life?" 

Grey Owl has had a stiff fight against official opposi- 
tion and indifference, in his struggle to get something done 
to build up the animal population of Canada, but he has 
kept at it, saying "If I yielded, I would be ashamed to face 
the animals and trees back home.'' It is good to hear 
that he has now got the heads of the government depart- 
ment behind him, and that arrangements are being made 
to ensure the continuance of his work with the beaver even 
if his death supervened. So much has been done that 
already it may be said not only, "Wa-Sha-Quan-Asin the 
Indian has spoken", but also, he has achieved. 


Talk by Professor Mackenzie 

The Far Eastern situation was the subject of an 
extremely interesting talk by Professor Norman Mac- 
kenzie on Saturday, January 29th. The war in China, he 
said, was not merely a struggle between two countries, it 
was a clash of various forces, economic, national and 
psychological that was taking place. He outlined the 
factors that promoted imperialism in Japan, and described 
the recent growth of Chinese nationalism, at the same time 
gi\ing a clear picture of v/hat interests of other nations 
were at stake in the Far East. 

After holding the keen attention of his audience for 
nearly an hour with his address, Professor Mackenzie 
answered a number of questions on the general inter- 
national situation. 

Lecture by Professor Detrick 

"I am not a lecturer, but a story teller" said Professor 
Guy Detrick as he opened his talk to the School on the 
evening of February 4th. Professor Detrick told a most 
interesting story of the World's History. 

Everyone was impressed by a great canvas, 50 ft. by 
6 ft., which took him ten years to complete, on which were 
graphically represented all the important historical events 
in the history of the world. 

Professor Detrick gives an interesting account of the 
chart's development. He found that 50fr of his pupils 
were failing in History, so he conceived a small form of 
the canvas which we saw. His class was given a book- 
sized copy, and 99% of them passed. Then he was called 
upon to make a lecture on History, and he copied the small 
chart on a 30' x 5' canvas. 

This was such a great success that he developed his 
present canvas, which gives an exceedingly vivid pre- 
sentation of our world's progress. 


Talk by Bishop Renison 

Bishop Renison gave us a very enjoyable evening one 
Sunday last term, when he told of his trip to the Mediterr- 
anean Sea. Among the countries he visited were Egypt, 
Palestine, Italy and Syria, 

The Bishop's account of his motor ride to Damascus 
was highly amusing, while his vivid description of the 
Pyramids left a deep impression on our minds. We wish 
Bishop Renison were a more frequent visitor, so that v/e 
might enjoy his sermons and talks more often. 

Galer Hagarty Memorial Prizes 

A Galer Hagarty prize for shooting was presented to 
Mood by the Headmaster in Hall on February 22nd. An- 
other has been forwarded to H. Smith. 

In the course of a letter forwarding the prizes, Captain 
deL. H. M. Panet gives a short history of the gift: 

Previous to the Great War, a team of Cadets from 
Canada went to England to compete at Bisley and take 
part in Cadet Competitions, and I may say in passing that 
they were entirely successful in practically every com- 
petition in which they entered. Amongst others on the 
team was Galer Hagarty, of the Karbord Collegiate 
Institute, Toronto, whose father at one time was Principal 
of the Collegiate. 

The Donor of the Prize, Surgeon-Captain R. J. E. 
Hanson, R.N. (Ret'd.) was on the Council of the National 
Rifle Association, and in consequence was brought into 
contact with the Cadets and formed a paternal friendship 
with Galer Hagarty, This friendship was renewed during 
the Great War, when Cadet Hagarty went overseas with 
one of the University drafts. Cadet Hagarty was posted 
to the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry and 
was killed in action in June, 1916. 

In his memory, Surgeon-Captain Hanson donates each 
year to each Military District in Canada a copy of Earl 



Roberts' "Forty-One Years in India", to be awarded to the 
Cadet in each District who makes the highest score in the 
Imperial Challenge Shield and D.C.R.A. Winter Series of 
Matches. Surgeon-Captain Hanson is still interested in 
boys' activities and each year sponsors and arranges for 
a trip for boys from the British Isles, who are in a Cadet 
Corps, to Canada. 

We congratulate W. Mood and Howard Smith.

On the evening of the 21st. of December the Senior 
and Junior Schools gathered in the gaily decorated Hall 
for the annual Christmas Supper. 

When all were seated, a fanfare was blown from the 
balcony, and a Herald read a proclamation inviting one and 
all to joui the feast. Then the doors reopened and the 
traditional procession entered, dressed in appropriate cos- 
tumes. First came a page, the smallest boy in the Junior 
School, followed by two stout-muscled woodsmen bearing 
on their shoulders the yule log; then came chefs holding 
aloft the boar's head, turkey, and plum pudding, v/hile a 
Jester played about making merry faces and rattling his 
toys. Slowly this company wound its way through the 
Hall to the steps of the dais, and when it v/as grouped 
there, organ notes pealed forth in the balcony, the choir 
suddenly emerged, and Christmas Carols were sung, 
notably "Good King Wenceslas." The Hall lent itself 
admirably to this old English custom, and Miss Williams 
and those who took part are to be congratulated on the 
success of this prelude to the Christmas supper. 

The meal was a splendid one and soon the tables were 
swept clean of turkeys, nuts, ice-cream and other Christmas 
fare. There followed a bursting of balloons, and then the 
School went from the sublime to the ridiculous or perhaps 
vice versa. 

For at eight o'clock, boys, masters, parents and Old 
Boys assembled in the Gym, where for the past week cer- 
tain hard-working stage-hands had been erecting the stage 
under the direction of Mr. Parr. Here the audience wit- 
nessed three plays, whose performance, direction and story 
left nothing to be desired. 

The first was a series of four scenes of English history, 
as recorded in the Sellars and Yeatman classic "1066 and 
All That", a little garbled perhaps by the able hand of Mr. 
Maier. Percy Russel read an introduction to each incident 
and the Prefects played their parts like experts, not a whit 


disconcerted by the unexpected collapse of the King's Bench 
or the failure of the wings to support the measured tramp 
of the soldiers. Our model history lesson was greatly en- 
joyed and the "Very Much Hors d'Oeuvres" was a howling 

Next on the programme was the annual New Boys' 
show, "The Avocado Bride", written by J. W. Langmuir. 
It was an old-fashioned melodrama about a tavern keeper 
during the California gold rush days, and how he escaped 
the machinations of a scheming gangster and his three 
henchmen. The chorus, exceedingly well drilled, were 
received with loud applause; and the habitue and the Eng- 
lish painter came in for much laughter. J. W. Langmuir 
and T. Seagram directed the show; Miss Smith made the 
costumes and Mr. Wilson helped greatly with the produc- 

Last but not least, the School Dramatic Club put on 
"Elegant Edward", the story of a master crook who dress- 
ed in the height of fashion, and his adventures in robbing 
a West-End flat of an unexpectedly imitation diamond 
necklace. Hayes as usual played the leading role very well 
and was admirably supported by the rest of the cast. 

Thus ended quite the most successful Christmas cele- 
bration the School has yet enjoyed and grateful thanks 
are owed to the many people who made the evening such 
an enjoyable one. 

In the historical skits, all the Prefects appeared, each 
taking a different role in successive scenes. 

New Boys who had parts in the "Avocado Bride" 
were: — Phin, Beairsto, Harstone, Langdon, Savage, Thomp- 
son, Duggan i., Garbutt, Rea, Wood, Sinclitico i., Sinclitico 
ii.. Black, Coultis, McAvity i. In the Chorus were: O'Han- 
lon, Rougvie, Heaven, Lawson ii., Layne, Holton ii., Stokes, 
Bowman, Sims, Gardiner, Avery. The "Golden Gaters", 
song trio, were Jones i., Morris and Hart ii. 

The cast of "Elegant Edward" was as follows: — 
"Burglar Bill", Langmuir; "Mr. Treherne", Hayes; Mrs. 





Treheme, Hancock; Police-sergeant, Giffen; Policeman, 
Taylor 1. 

Electricians, carpenters and other handy men behind 
the scenes included Patch, Grover, Langmuir, Hobbs, 
Waters, Harvey, Hampson i., Lambert, Duncanson, Mc- 
Laughlin i., Hancock and, last but far from least, Kirk- 
patrick i. 

In the Orchestra, the musicians were Tate, Beairsto, 
Bryson, Hart, Sinclitico and McConnell i.

The curtain parts, and in the spotlight's glare 
A brave in buckskin glory takes the stage, 
A living portrait from old Cooper's page, 
One broad, bright feather in his braided hair. 
Beside him pictures move; bewitched eyes stare 
As waddling wide-tailed beaver clowns engage 
In comic war on chairs, then turn to cage 
Strong rivers with their logs for winter lair. 
Then Grey Owl tells his tales of Jellyroll 
And Rawhide, pleading for his forest friends. 
His voice is strangely quiet, yet it flings 
The glowing words afar; a voice that brings 
The snow-bound pinewoods near; its magic blends 
With force, deep peace, the northland's very soul.

I had all but forgotten this little town of Nevers, 
swallowed up in the heart of the Laurentian Mountains. It 
had not impressed me in summertime, with its low-lying 
hills, stretching out into the hinterland. The typical French 
Canadian bams and farm houses, dotted here and there 
over the landscape, looked dirty and untidy, and gave a 
slovenly appearance to the countryside. 

This winter, however, I visited Nevers again. I could 
not at first believe it was the same place, for it had been 
vastly changed by the powers of nature through the in- 
tervening months. It seemed that out of summer's shade 
had come a bright and sunny winter. Out of the darkness 
of the earth had come a sparkling light from the glittering 
snow. Hearing the jingle of bells from the sleighs, which 
had come to the train from the various winter hotels, and 
the continuous chatter of Frenchmen who greeted the new 
guests, I was reminded of Chamonix in the French Alps. 

With my poles in my hands and my knapsack slung 
over my back, I set out. As I swept past the foot of the 
Marquis, I could see those same hills I had seen before. 
But now, in some way, they appeared like gigantic moun- 
tains, towering out of the powdered clouds of snow beneath. 
I saw firs and pines which before I had passed without 
notice. Now they possessed a certain beauty, when 
against a background of splendour such as this. Those 
same farm houses which had been a blot on the landscape 
now added to the grandeur of the foothills. A spidery 
web of a million ski tracks spread itself over the expanse 
of clean, fresh snow. Beyond the peaks, a few huge white 
clouds had gathered to make the mountains appear even 

But, at last, spring must come and, I thought with dis- 
appointment, these mighty mountains will disappear in 
floods, down the long drawn out faces of the hills.

Officer O'Reilly's ringing footsteps and the soughing of 
the wind through the trees were the only sounds to be 
heard on the campus. O'Reilly had recently been trans- 
ferred from a downtown beat and the silence of the univer- 
sity oppressed him. At one o'clock in the morning the 
buildings loomed black in the background, and nobody 
stirred on the boulevards leading to them. It was, O'Reilly 
could not help thinking, an ideal spot for murder. Because 
this thought was still in his mind, he started when one of 
the gates, revealed by the pale radiance of a distant street 
light, began to open slowly. 

As O'Reilly watched, a black-clad figure emerged 
furtively from the gate. The policeman dodged behind a 
tree as the figure glanced cautiously up and down the 
street and began to walk quickly in his direction. From 
behind the bole of his tree he watched the figure pass. The 
prowler's tumed-up collar and turned-down hat brim hid 
his features. O'Reilly began to follow the suspicious night- 
hawk. He had nothing definite to arrest the man for, so 
his only alternative was to follow him and catch him in 
the act of breaking the law. 

The figure led him at a swift pace for several blocks. 
They were entering the more populated part of the city. 
At last they reached a low, dark building and the figure 
ahead stopped. After a furtive glance round, he approach- 
ed a car which was parked at the curb and fumbled for a 
few seconds with the lock on the door. As the door 
opened, O'Reilly thought it was time to intervene. He 
called to the figure and began to run towards the car with 
the sinister shadow standing beside it. The suspect made 
no attempt to escape while he came up puffing. 

"So you're trying to steal this car, eh!" said O'Reilly 

"Steal it! Indeed not, officer. It is my own auto- 
mobile," replied the figure in a mild, educated voice. 

"Yeah? Let's see yer licence." 


While the stranger reached into a pocket of his black 
coat for the required document, O'Reilly had an opportun- 
ity to examine his capture. He was elderly and distin- 
guished in appearance; certainly there was nothing of the 
crook about him. The policeman scanned the licence 
which was produced and his suspicious manner thawed. 

"So you're Professor Kilgour! Now an' I'll be 
apologizin' to ye, Professor, but you must admit ye were 
actin' mighty suspicious." 

"Yes .... er .... I suppose it does seem strange," 
said the Professor in a slightly embarrassed tone, "but I 
left my car here this afternoon while I was visiting the 
establishment yonder, and after I came out it completely 
slipped my mind, and I walked. Forgetting things has 
become a failing with me of late. I'm becoming quite the 
absent-minded professor, I fear." 

O'Reilly was still puzzled. 

"And why are ye comin' at this ungodly hour to get 
it, Professor? An' why did ye make so sure nobody was 
watchin' ye leave yer house?" 

The Professor's embarrassment increased. 

"To tell the truth, officer, I did not want anyone to 
become acquainted with the fact that I visited that place 
yonder, so I came back after everyone was asleep." 

"Tut, tut!" was the only suitable reply O'Reilly could 
think of. 

Thus encouraged, the Professor became more 

"I was afraid someone would find out about the 
irresistible craving I have that makes me visit this place. 
I'm in constant fear of discovery. It all started when I 
was very young. Gradually and insidiously the habit 
grew on me until to-day I can't resist the craving. The 
longing comes, and I must obey it, I must!" The Professor 
was nearly screaming. 

A hophead, thought O'Reilly grimly. It was a shame. 
But perhaps if he found that this joint was the Professor's 


source of supply he might get the downtown beat again. 

"Where do ye get yer supply? In there?" He pointed 
to the low, dark building. 

"Yes", said the Professor brokenly. "Oh, if ever I 
were found out, I should be the laughing stock of the 

The policeman shone his flashlight on the low building. 
The sign above the door bore the words: Bill's Soda 

"What kind of drug do ye take?" he asked the elderly 

"Drug?" The Professor was bewildered. "I don't take 
any drug." 

"Ye don't!" yelled O'Reilly. "Then what is it ye 
have such a longin' for, that ye can't resist?" 

"Oh, that!" said the Professor. 

"Yes, that! What is it ye have such a cravin' for?" 

"Why, double chocolate sodas. I'm in constant 
fear " 

But he was interrupted as O'Reilly's Irish sense of 
humour got the better of him. His laughter echoed down 
the empty street. — P.J.G.

I woke up one dark, sultry night with a sense of un- 
easiness. Someone was in the room! 

There was no sound, yet I felt that someone was in 
the room. "Maybe it is the quietness of the stealthy 
night, or the creaking of the old, rambling frame house 
that .... Oh bosh! Don't be a fool! Of course, there's 
nothing in the room." Such were my thoughts until I 
drifted off to sleep again. 

I woke again a little while later with the same 
mysterious sensation. Someone was in the room, I v/as 
sure of it now. A shadow moved by the window. I was 
right, there was someone .... or was it the curtain ? Good 
Lord, what was that? It moved again, and the figure of 
a man stood before the window, outlined against dark, 
formidable storm clouds outside. 

Scarcely daring to breathe, I lay in my bed, my heart 
thumping so that I thought surely he would hear it. I'm 
no coward; but he was a massive giant, about seven feet 
tall and, to judge by his walk, a very heavy man. 

Just then the moon broke through the clouds and 
shone in the window. I uttered a shriek. The man had 
the most distorted face I had ever seen, twisted in a half- 
mad leer. And his eyes! The eyes of a stark-mad 
lunatic shone with a wild fire. There could be only one 
face like that. I had seen it, in the evening paper, the 
face of Delarge, escaped lunatic. 

At the sound of my voice he turned, and, with a wild 
gleam in his eyes advanced towards me. As he came closer, 
step by step, inch by inch, I lay there, like one hypnotised, 
not able to move a muscle. Still he came closer, the veins 
standing out on his powerful neck. I tried to utter a ciy, 
but it froze in my throat. As he came closer, his eyes 
full of crazed wrath, I hoped surely something, anything, 
would happen to stop this horrible apparition. 

Then, as he came nearer, I noticed that his eyes did 
not seem to see me at all. Indeed, he seemed to be staring 



at my bed as though it were a ghost. He hesitated, 
stopped; then, with a great sob, flung himself to the side 
of my bed. There he knelt and, as he had been wont to do 
as a boy, recited his prayers in broken, mumbled sentences. 

Then, swiftly and noiselessly as he had come, he left 
by the fire escape. 

Next morning, my wife was reading the paper. Sud- 
denly she spoke. "Oh dear, they caught Delarge not two 
blocks from here, last night. He was a killer; murdered 
his wife and two children. Mercy, what danger we must 
have been m!" — G.D.E.W.

Both Phil Bently and I were employed by the same 
firm, the head of which was an old friend of the family. 
At the present time we were down at his palatial country 
home in the south of England. 

Our host, Mr. E. C. Marmon, was an eccentric old man 
of about seventy-five years of age. His family and relations 
were expecting him to die at any moment and there was 
great contemplation as to who would inherit his vast for- 
tun for he had specifically stated that he had willed to one 
person alone, instead of dividing it up amongst all his 
relations. Although he was at what most men would call 
the end of his life, he refused to retire from business and 
every week-end would drive down to his estate to look at 
his pets. They were the one pride and joy of his life, 
and consisted of four beautiful Angora-Persian cats and 
several thoroughbred dogs of different breeds. 

It was just two days after we had arrived that I was 
sitting at breakfast one morning, reading a newspaper. 
when Phil entered the room with a long, sorrowful face. 
Being accustomed to his cheery, smiling countenance I 
scented trouble, but I was entirely unprepared for the 
reason of his sorrowful countenance. 

"Hilda's dead," were his only words. 

For a second I could not grasp the magnitude of his 
words and with a cry I leapt from the table, dropping the 
tea-cup which I was holding in my hand. 

"Hilda's what?" 

Standing there, motionless and silent, he merely nodded 
his head. 

"This is awful. When did it happen? How did it 
happen? Does Mr. Marmon know about it yet?" 

A bitter smile rose to the surface of Phil's coun- 

"No, no, he doesn't know anything about it yet. It 
will probably kill him when he does find out." 

"But how did it happen?" I demanded in an agony of 



"It was her heart," replied Phil, "it always was weak 
and last night it just stopped." 

Only just recovering from this dreadful shock, I found 
an even greater problem entering my mind. How were we 
to break the news to Mr. Marmon in the easiest possible 
manner? Suggestion after suggestion entered my head, 
only to be discarded as useless. We could not escape this 
difficult and dangerous problem for up to this time we 
were the two who knew anything of Hilda's death. 

Poor Phil was at his wits' end for an idea. 

"If only it hadn't been Hilda", he lamented, "she was 
dearer to him than anything else in the whole world." 

Finally we were forced to face the inevitable truth 
of the situation. We would have to tell Mr. Marmon 
exactly what happened before he found out for himself. 

With great determination we went upstairs and on 
entering Mr. Marmon's bedroom we found him just start- 
ing to eat his breakfast in bed. How cheerful and happy 
he looked, entirely unsuspecting the great shock in store 
for him. 

"Mr. Marmon," began Phil in a husky voice, "I am 
afraid that we have some rather bad news for you. You 
see last night Hilda — ." Here his voice failed him and he 
was forced to stop. Mr. Marmon's face turned an ashen 

"You mean you are trying to tell me that Hilda died. 
I must admit that although this comes as a great shock to 
me. I was not altogether unprepared for it. I knew that 
her heart was weak and as a matter of fact I am surprised 
that she has held on so long." 

To say that we were astonished is hardly the word. 
We were literally dumbfounded. 

"You mean that you actually knew that she was going 
to die?" I gasped. 

"I at least guessed it," Mr. Marmon replied, "after all, 
if we humans have to die some time, you cannot expect a 
cat to live for ever." 



D'Arcy smiled as the tumblers of the safe's combina- 
tion clicked into place. In that split second during which 
he reached for the knob, he thought of many things. 

How perfect was this theft! In another instant 
eighty thousand dollars would be his. In another moment, 
he, D'Arcy Stone, would be very rich. 

Yet he was perfectly safe. At the moment, he was 
wearing a black silk mask, a light overcoat, and soft 
gloves. Not even his mother would recognize him. There 
could be no finger-prints. Yet, should he hear the falter- 
ing steps of old Jepson, the night watchman, in the waiting- 
room, he would throw his coat and gloves over the rack, 
reach for the light switch and when Jepson came in, he, 
junior partner of the company he was robbing, would be 
at his desk, "finishing up some work", as was his frequent 

Jepson, in his opinion, was a doddering old fool, and 
why the company retained him, deaf as he was, much less 
permitted him to carry a loaded gun, was a mystery to 

Through the thinness of his glove he felt the cold steel 
of the knob. 

At the same instant he heard the door of the waiting- 
room open. Jepson! He rose, stripped off coat and 
gloves, switched on the lights, raced to his desk, and was 
just wetting his pen when Jepson entered. 

He saw the flash of blank amazement overspread Jep- 
son's features. With fumbling celerity a gun appeared in 
the watchman's quivering hand. 

"Don't move, you thug!" he quavered. 

What was the trouble with the old fool? 

Suddenly, he realized. His mask was still on! He 
was foiled, foiled by his own ingenuity. He had been too 
clever. With frantic fear his hands leaped upward to tear 
at the accursed mask. The old fool might shoot him! 


Half-comprehendingly, he heard Jepson's faltering 
voice again .... "Don't move, I say . . . . " 

Then a blow in the chest as from a hammer, a white 
flash of pain, darkness. 

D'Arcy Stone was dead.

Truly, "crime does not pay." Although it may take 
a long time, retribution will overtake those who break the 
law which society has made. To demonstrate that crime 
is invariably dealt with, we bring you the case of "Baby- 
Face" Andy L Canadians may point to the trial and 

sentence of "Baby-Face" as an immortal example of the 
infallibility of British justice. 

Like all great careers of crime, "Baby-Face" Andy's 
was short and murky. Probably his rapid apprehension 
was due to the limited territory in which he operated. 
"Baby-Face" attempted his nefarious crimes within the 
narrow confines of a boarding school. 

Overnight, he became famous cimong his compatriots 
as a "stick-up" man. He grew bolder and bolder. "A 
tack is the best form of attack" became his motto. While 
the pedagogue who was imparting knowledge to him in a 
given period was absent from the room, "Baby-Face" would 
plant a tack in his chair. The results were sometimes 
startling, and always amusing, but it was too good to last. 
A morning dawned when "Baby-Face's" brief hour of bliss 
was destined to come to an end. 

Relating his latest success to a kindred spirit, "Baby- 
Face" was surprised by a summons to the Masters' Com- 
mon Room. With the boldness of a hardened malefactor, 
he entered the sacred precincts and was confronted by five 
stem faces. Something was amiss! His voice trembled 
slightly as he said: "You sent for me, sir?" 

The dignitary thus addressed was clad in a black gown 


and seemed to be presiding at the proceedings. Looking 
coldly at the criminal, he said in solemn tones, slowly and 
inexorably: "You are charged by this court with putting 
tacks on masters' chairs. Do you plead guilty or not 

His heinous crime was discovered! Justice had over- 
taken him! It was useless to equivocate. He decided to 
throw himself on the mercy of the court. "Guilty, sir!" 

If "Baby-Face" had thought to avert justice in this 
manner, he was mistaken. The trial proceeded with all 
legal formality and solemnity. The presiding judge, whom 
we viill call Mr. X, called on four of the other masters 
present to testify. They stated their cases briefly and 
mercilessly. All four had been victims of the accused's 
criminal mind. One went so far as to say that his mental 
suffering had been as great as his physical suffering. The 
judge then told the story of another, unable to be present, 
who had almost done a back flip on coming into contact 
with a well placed tack. It was not, stated the judge, that 
the worthy doctor didn't have a sense of humour, the 
trouble was that he had not seen the pomt. As the full 
meaning of this statement dawned on the accused, he bare- 
ly suppressed a grin at the memory it invoked. 

When the testimony was finished, one whom we will 
call Mr. Y, hitherto a spectator and casual wise-cracker, 
suggested that "Baby-Face" get a master's chair and show 
them how he placed the tacks. "Baby-Face" proceeded 
to demonstrate his technique. He placed two tacks in such 
a position on the chair that the sitter must sit on them 
or not sit at all. 

The judge then passed sentence. "Baby-Face" was 
condemned to sit on the chair which he had prepared. What 
a triumph for justice! A dictionary was placed in each 
of the accused's hands to ensure that he would not lower 
himself into the "hot seat." Good taste prohibits us from 
giving further details. 

Thus was another criminal brought to justice. Let 
this prove to you that .... that .... well, it was a good 
story, anyway. 


"Off the Record" 
That Was the Question 

He was handed a letter. 

In breathless haste he tore at the envelope. 

A thousand thoughts raced through his mind. — Would 
the worst happen? No,— it couldn't! He had tried with 
all his might and main. If he had not succeeded, how 
could he face it? 

Oh, why won't this letter come out? 

It is an omen, — a sign of failure. A sinking feeling 
in him tells him he is doomed. 

Doomed to days of mental anquish, — after such great 

His hands shakily hold the letter, white knuckles 
gleaming through thin skin. 

The blurred writing swims before his eyes. 

He stiffens .... What? .... Cheers! .... She can come 
to the dance.

The Ship 

It was a perfect day, as the vessel glided majestically 
across the river. The sun beat down on its smooth blue 
surface, broken only by patches of warm breeze. 

The beautiful steamer's sides reflected their dazzling 
glory on the glistening water. 

What lines! What a superb result of expert craft- 
manship! One can imagine the Captain, in his spotless 
white uniform, guiding his ship on its way. 

Suddenly a sharp command rings out, and we sadly 
turn away, as the paper boat continues on her course down 
the new water trough over a radiator in classroom B.

With Apologies to Leigh Hunt 

Earl Harold Curtis . . . may he not again freeze — 

Awoke one morning with a cough and a sneeze, 

And saw within the snowdrifts in his room, 

Making it white and like a lily in bloom, 

His room-mate climbing into his pants. 

Excessive draught had made Earl Harold cold, 

And to the presence in the room he said, 

"What time is it?" 'Bish' Vipond raised his head. 

And in a voice all shivering with shock, 

Replied, "I think 'tis not yet five o'clock". 

"Shall I get up?" said Earl. "O that I doubt". 

Replied the Bish. Earl Harold spoke more low, 

And sleepily still, and said, "Go wake John Hayes 

And let me sleep for days and days." 

The Bishop laughed and stumbled out. The sun came up. 

With awakening light. But tired Earl Harold slumbered 

Like t'was the night. When lateness list showed who 

Must run, you bet Earl Harold's name was one. 

Night Lines 

I said 

I never did like snakes. 

Especially in my bed. 

It makes 

Me shudder, scream and shout. 

"Hello, what's all that noise about?" 

"Please, sir, I think he's got a fit; 

He was in bed and now he's out of it." 

"What's that around his neck?" 

"Why sir, it looks like rope, just wait a sec. ; 

He's thrown it off — don't harm her — 

He needs more practice to become a snake charmer." 


Heard in the Junior School 

Two Old Boys, gorgeously attired in brand new R.M.C. 
uniforms complete with pill boxes, capes, swagger sticks 
and gaiters, approach the main entrance of the Junior 
School, right arms itching to come to the salute, chests 
protruded six inches and heads tipped back over the heels. 

Small boy: "Please sir, there are two policemen coming 
in the door." 


Dear Editor: 

You are wrong! T.C.S. boys are not just boys who 
go to T.C.S. They are a very complex and remarkable 
branch of the human race, a branch that we (the T.C.S. 
boys) think very charming. 

"Why?" This question flashes out, meaning to nip 
me in the bud, so to speak. After some thought, I find 
the brilliant counter: "Why not?" 

We love music! Yes, music of all kinds. Some of 
us like it close and some of us like it at a distance, but the 
average man of this institution prefers it somewhere. 

We are artistic! Of course, we are not Rembrandt 
van Rujibubs — or whatever his name was — but we all have 
some splash of this finer sense inborn in us somewhere. 
Look at the desks! Most of them are beautifully carved 
and illuminated, at least according to some definition of 
beauty. And look at the Carnegie Room table ! There is 
the touch of a master hand in every line. 

We like literature! Some call it LIFE, some call it 
all sorts of abusive names, but it is with us in every form. 
We think it is fine; or to sum it up neatly and concisely in 
the words of Gertrude Reni-stein: 

Very fine is my valentine 
very fine and very mine. 
Another line by Gertrude Stein 
would not be mine 


though very fine 
by Gertrude Stein 
a finer line 
is surely mine 
not Grertrude Stein's. 
All this, surely, goes to show you that T.C.S. boys are 
great fellows. Not conceited, of course, but fully self- 
appreciative. After all, statistics show that in joining 
hands T.C.S. boys would stretch in a ragged line from here 
to there. This staggering fact must prove something. 

At this point, dear Editor, I hope you are so involved 
in finding a deeper meaning in my arguments that you will 
concede me my point. 

If you don't, I may write to you again. 

Yours, etc., 

GERTIE (Herself).

At LakefieW, January 22 nd. 

As the rugby team had beaten the Grove twice, the 
hockey team was fighting hard to keep this record intact, 
and after sixty minutes of play the School skated off the 
ice with a well earned 6-1 victory. 

There was a good sheet of ice for the game and the 
School's first line was outskating their opponents only to 
come up against a hard-hitting Lakefield defense. The 
School opened the scoring when Russel scored his first 
goal of the season on a pass from Fleming. This closed 
the scoring for the first period but both teams missed 
numerous chances. 

In the second period Warburton went on a scoring 
spree by getting four goals. Two of these were brilliant 
individual efforts and Peacock and Russel picked up 
assists on the other two. Before the end of the period 
Simpson, who was playing a great game for the Grove, 
scored their only goal. 

Warburton scored his fifth goal of the game shortly 
after the start of the third period, to put the School on the 
top-end of a 6-1 score. Both defenses played excellent 
hockey, while Mclvor in the School nets made some sensa- 
tional saves. Warburton was the outstanding forward on 
the ice. 

Final score: T.C.S. 6; The Grove 1. ' 



At Port Hope, January 29th. 

Despite a strong defense, the Manufacturers Life were 
not able to hold back the First team and were defeated in 
an overtime period by a score of 3-2. 

The ice was rather slow, but it did not take long for 
both teams to hit their stride. About a third the way 
through the first period, Cayley took the puck on a pass 
from Fleming and made no mistake in his shot. From 
then on M.L.I, tried harder and the play centered around 
the School goal, for some minutes. Our opponents did 
not, however, have the puck to themselves, as they spent 
the last two minutes of the first period defending their own 
net against a T.C.S. power play. 

From the face off, Warburton took a pass from 
Peacock through the M.L.I, defense and scored from very 
close in. No sooner had this happened than MacLean of 
the visitors, taking advantage of a wild melee and a pros- 
trate goaler, slid the puck past Mclvor and made the 
score 2-1. After this the play became rougher and mix- 
ups were frequent round the goals, giving both goalies 
many scares. Eventually the play calmed down and de- 
generated into a series of solo and two man rushes which 
did not get anybody anywhere, ending the period somewhat 

After several minutes of exciting play Mclvor being 
on his stomach could not clear a loose puck, and William- 
son flipped it by him making the score 2 all. Sterling, wide- 
open hockey was now played in an effort to get the winning 
goal, but both goalies, Randem and Mclvor, were unbeat- 

It was decided to have an overtime period of ten 
minutes and so the played reopened with the School rush- 
ing to score the winning goal. Soon Warburton went into 
the comer and passed out in front of the net. Here Peacock 
snared the loose puck and flipped it into the goal, makmg 
the score 3-2 and clinchmg the game. The visitors did 
their best to regain the goal but the School had the edge. 


though they failed to capitalize on Bond's penalty. Through- 
out, it was a hard fast game, Peacock and McCullough 
starring for the home team, and Randem and Williamson 
for the visitors. 


At Port Hope, February 5th. 

In this game the School again emerged victorious, 
coming from behind in a thrilling duel to win by the score 
of 5 to 4. 

In the first few minutes, Fleming passed to Peacock, 
who scored from the blue line. This was soon followed by 
a goal by Cassels "major", a star of this year's Varsity 
team. Kappa Alpha again scored at the end of the period, 
Boeckh being the marksman. 

At the beginning of the second period, Mills lengthened 
the lead for the visitors with another goal. Eight minutes 
later Cassels scored his second goal, making the score 
Kappa Alpha 4, T.C.S. 1. 

Warburton, for the School, soon sank the rubber on 
an assist from Russel, and in the very next play Warburton 
passed to Russel for another Trinity goal, on which the 
period ended. 

Then came the final period, and again Warburton was 
prominent, making the play for Russel to pass to Fleming, 
who scored. McAvity obtained the last goal on an assist 
from Mood. 

So the game ended, T.C.S. 5, Kappa Alpha 4. 

Unfortunately Warburton was injured in the last 
minutes of the game by a flying stick. 

The ganging rushes of the Fraternity proved very 
dangerous, but the excellent defence work by Fleming and 
McCullough, together with a magnificent performance in 
goal by Mclvor, kept the Kappa Alphas in check. 

A feature of the game was the presence on the 
team of Mr. Hamilton Cassels and his son, Tony. 


The teams: 

T.C.S.— MoCullough, Russel ii., Peacock i., Mood, Cayley i., Mc- 
Avity i., Fleming, Mclvor i. 

Kappa Alpha — Battrell, Smith, Powell, Mills, Cassels "max", 
Cassels "major". Boeckh. Woods, Pengh, Jarvis. 


At Port Hope, Januarj' 25th. 

Our second game with the Grove began rather slowly. 
but after about ten minutes of play Morley managed to 
slip the puck past Mclvor, assisted by Crickmore. The 
School did not take long in retaliating. McAvity max. and 
Turcot max. took the puck from the face-off and in less 
than half a minute had it past the Lakefield defence and 
into the goal. 

It was Morley again who opened the scoring in the 
second period. After his success, no more goals were 
scored in this period, but Mclvor had to play phenomenal 
hockey to keep the fast shots of the Lakefield forwards 
out of the net. 

LakejBeld again scored soon after the third period 
opened, this time Carson tallying. Then the School made 
a fierce come-back. Time after time they attacked, until 
at last Warburton passed the puck to McCullough, who put 
it in for the School's second goal. Not long afterwards, 
Warburton managed another fine pass, this time to Russel, 
who tied up the score. From that point on both sides 
were rushing hard in a dingdong struggle to break the tie, 
but the game ended with the score unchanged. 

The teams: 

T.C.S.— Mclvor max., McCullough, Fleming; Peacock, max.. 
Wlarbiirton, Russel ma.; McAvity max., Cayley max., Turcot max., 
Turcot ma., Taylor max. 

The Grove— Pease, Stuart, Simpson, Morley, Frewer, Crickmore, 
Harris, Carson, Warren, Rose. 


At Fort Hope, February 13th. 

The School met with its first defeat of the year at 
the hands of Pickering, by a score of 4-1, in a game marked 
by hard and fast play. 

On good ice, both teams started off with a rush, and 
for the opening five minutes the puck was hemmed in 
behind the blue lines. Finally the School took the initiative, 
but though they kept the puck for some time in the 
Pickering area, they were unable to score. 

It was in the second period that Pickering put on the 
"power play" and before long MacKee, taking the puck 
behind the School net, managed to put it past Mclvor. 
Almost immediately afterward, before the School team 
could get organized again, MacGillivray scoied a second 
goal with a hard shot. Later in the period, during a 
Pickering "ganging attack", McCullough and Fleming broke 
away, and on taking Fleming's pass McCullough made no 
mistake. This was the only T.C.S. goal. The game grew 
harder and faster and the play less open from that point. 
In a mix-up in front of the School net, Robertson presently 
scored the third Pickering goal. 

Half way through the third period, MacGillivray took 
the puck on a solo rush, and shot it into the net for the 
final goal. Both teams fought hard until the end of the 
game, but neither could achieve further success. 

The teams: 

T.C.S. — Mclvor, McCullough, Fleining, Peacock, Warburton, 
Russel, McAvity, Cayley, Mood, Turcot max., Turcot ma., Taylor 

Pickering — Rogers, Taylor, Robb, Lloyd, Charles, Kydd, Mac- 
Kee, MacGillivray, Myers, Robertson. 

We were unable to decide whether our report of the 
Old Boys' game of January 15th. was sporting journalism 
or pure literature, so we have compromised by printing it 
in the Old Boys' pages. 




Langdon beat Mclvor ma in the Feather Weight. 

Somerville beat Stokes in the Light Weight. 

Lawson ma. beat Wood in the Light Weight.

finally declared the winner. 

Somerville beat Lawson ma in the Light Weight. 

A fairly fast bout; Somerville showed good foot-work 
and an excellent defense. 

Thomson max. beat Holton ma in the Wlelter Weight. 

This was a close and well fought bout; Thomson used 
a fast left to much advantage. 

Hart ma. beat Moore in the Bantam Weight. 

Moore proved to be very aggressive, but Hart showed 
good style and lots of power in his punches. 

Lang^don beat Jones max in the Feather Weight. 

They both kept fighting from the start to the finish, 
when Langdon was declared the winner. 

Finley beat O'Hanlon in the Fly Weight. 

A fast and very evenly matched bout, which proved to 
be the best of the afternoon. 

An account of Middleside and Littleside Hockey and 
Basketball will appear at the end of the season in our next 



Ten New Boys took part in the gym. competition held

towards the Magee Cup: J. O'Hanlon, J. Hart, C. Somer- 
ville, G. Finley, H. Langdon, L. Holton, J. Thomson, H. 
McAvity, W. Mclvor and P. Cay ley. 

After a display which provided the audience with 
occasional amusement as well as an exhibition of much 
good gymnastic work, O'Hanlon beat Hart for first place 
by a very small margin of points. Somerville was third.

The Squash team, composed of Mr. Lewis, Irwin, Part-

noon at the Badminton and Racquets Club in Toronto on 
Saturday, January 24th. After a dinner given to the

hoped for,

School Squash Notes 

"Mouse" Landry at the moment reigns supreme in the 
courts, though he looks worried these days. But then, 
who wouldn't? One can't come from Montreal, support 
"what certain hockey team" and still play Squash serenely. 
Cheer up, Mouse, they're going to win a hockey game any 
year now. 

Jack Langmuir's game is falling off. We suppose one 
can't fall in love and not expect to drop a few points here 
and there. "Birdy" Partridge, too, finds the trips to 
Toronto mighty convenient. 

That super-salesman, "Soup" Irwin has sold nearly 
everyone a rew racquet. While ours hasn't improved our 
game any, it seems to have done that for the games of 
about ten other people. 


The winner of the Strathcona Silver Medal this year 
in the Annual Course of Musketry, is Pearson, who scored 
98 out of a possible 100. Following him were Beatty max., 
Taylor max., and Wills with 97, Lambert, Kirkpatrick 
max,. Peacock max. and Rea with 96, and Mood, Flock. 
Cartwright ma. and Holton ma. with 94.

"The Family Buys a New Car" 

Mrs. Euston sighed as she took her place beside her 
husband in the old, bedraggled, rattle-trap Ford car. The 
old bus had certainly seen better days; and now, it was a 
wonder that it even moved. It had been a wedding pre- 
sent, one of the finest wedding presents the Eustons had 
been given. It was eighteen years since the v/edding, and 
in eighteen years cars, like everything else, had changed. 

So it was little wonder that when one of the new shiny 
cars, driven by Mrs. Euston's next door neighbour, swept 
past, she felt very poor driving in a car like this one. 

"Oh George," she said, "if you could only get a raise, 
we could buy a new car hke the Smiths'." 

George felt he couldn't get a raise. It was true he 
could go and ask Mr. Williams, but what good would that 
be? Was it not only yesterday that Mr. Williams had 
corrected his accounts and told him he would have to be- 
come more accurate in his figures if he wished to hold his 

"I will try," he said after a moment of hesitation, 
"but I'm afraid it is no use; he's a strict man." 

George arrived promptly at nine fifteen. The click of 
typewriters in the outer office had started and could be 
heard from the hall where George hung his hat and coat. 

When he entered the oflEice he found a note on his desk 
which told him to see Mr. Williams at half past nine. The 
fifteen minutes passed slowly, but at length the time came. 



"Come in," answered Mr. Williams to George's gentle 
knock on the door. 

George came in and stood in front of Mr. Williams at 
his big oak desk. 

"Oh yes, Euston," he said. "I believe I did send for 

The talk with Mr. Williams lasted for some time, and 
when George came out he looked very happy. 

That evening at dinner George handed his salary 
cheque to his wife, who uttered a little cry of surprise at 
the amount credited to George. 

"You are now holding the salary cheque of the assist- 
ant manager of the well known firm Williams and Com- 
pany," said George proudly. "I was promoted this morn- 

The next time Elizabeth Euston drove to the office 
with her husband it was in a brand new Oldsmobile.

Mosic Notes 

Commencing last November, some of us have enjoyed 
a weekly "Symphonic Hour" of recorded music in Mr. 
Morse's room, on Sunday mornings after Chapel. We 
have heard so far: 

Schumann's A minor Piano Concerto. 

Beethoven's Seventh Symphony and Moonlight Sonata. 

Schubert's Unfinished Symphony and Ave Maria. 

Tchaikowsky's Fifth Symphony and many shorter 
works, of these and other composers. 

The few who have come have been faithful and en- 
thusiastic listeners. We only wish more would avail them- 
selves of this opportunity to hear really good music, well

The Dark Room 

The Dark Room opened just before the end of last 
term and has proved very popular. Our present member- 
ship stands at 22, and nearly all have successfully developed 
and printed several films of their own taking. Great in- 
terest has been shown by everybody, and the Dark Room 
is almost continuously in use during the boys' spare time. 



Although the weatherman has not been overly kind to 
us, so far this winter, there have been but one or two 
days on which it was too mild for hockey. For the first 
week of term there was sufficient snow for skiing, which 
was enjoyed by some fifteen members of the School. Two 
hockey squads turn out for practice daily. "A" Squad 
consists of the first and second teams, "B" Squad contains 
all the younger and more inexperienced players, and they 
are divided into a league of four teamxS. 

First Team 

To date the first team have played three games and 
have unfortunately lost them all. The first game was 
played on January 22nd., here, against a team from Christ 
Church, Toronto. The score was 4-0 for our visitors. 
They were a bit too much for our lads in size and speed, 
but the School team played well and showed promise for 
the first game. 

The second game on January 26th. was played at Lake- 
field. Once again we were downed, to the tune of 11-3 
by their "fourteen" team. Once again our opponents had 
superior speed and the small and strange ice surface 
rather confused the School team. However, the game was 
at times very close and exciting. 

The third game was against the Upper Canada Prep, 
first team; this was taking on their "firsts" for the first 
time in some years. The score at the close stood at 5-1 
for U.C.C, This was undoubtedly the best and closest 
game the team has played so far, despite the score, which 
was not entirely indicative of the difference in the two 
teams. No goals were scored during the last period. 

The following are the present members of the team: — 
Beament, Waters, German, Parr (capt.), Hope i., Lyall, 
Huycke, Greene, Wilson, Mackinnon. 



Second Team 

To date the second team have played but one game — 
at Lakefield, on February 9th. This resulted in a win by 
the score of 6-1 for the School. The team fought hard 
and victory by a good margin could not be denied. 

The following comprised the second team: Knapp i., 
Britton, Joy ii., Lambert (capt.), Anderson, Campbell, 
Moorhouse, Warner, Dignam, Walcot, Monro.

:hool record 


Mrs. Ketchum has very kindly entertained the boys of 
the Junior School at the Lodge; the lower half of the 
School at the beginning of term, and the two upper forms 
on Saturday, February 5th. 

The School attended the movie "Victoria the Great" on 
Thursday, January 13th. 

On Tuesday, January 25th., the boys heard Grey Owl, 
the Indian author and lecturer at the Capitol Theatre. His 
talk and pictures were most interesting and enjoyable. It 
was indeed a privilege to hear such an authority on Cana- 
dian wild life. 

Considerable vocal activity has been noticed in the 
music and art room the last few Sunday evenings. These 
sing songs have been most enjoyable, though it might per- 
haps be possible to have them a trifle more musical!

Boys' Association. Arrangements are in the hands of a 
committee consisting of John Alden. George Lucas, and 
Pat Bankier. 

By the time this Record is in the hands of its readers 
the dinner will probably have taken place. A fuller 
account of it will appear in the April number.

Vancouver Annual Dinner 

The Pacific Coast Branch held their annual dinner at 
the Vancouver Club, Vancouver, on December 3rd., 1937. 
After the business of the meeting some moving pictures of

won thirteen Little Big Four games.

At Port Hope, January 15th. 

This great game was the classic of the century, and 
most certainly kept up any tradition that previous Old 
Boys' games had set. 

Scheduled to begin at 3..30, the game was held up, 
owing to a shortage of Old Boys, but finally got under way 
about 4.20. Hugh Henderson's dive, as he led his squad 
on to the ice, was graceful, if unpremeditated, v,^hils his 
superb managing of the substitutes left everything to be 

True to the traditions of the Record, our notes on the 
first period are indecipherable. Some might even ask: 
What notes? However, we do know that McAvity and 
Turcot max. tallied for the School, making the score 2-0. 

After a brief intermission, the feature of v/hich was a 
solo by Mr. Yates, the second stanza, as the real sporting 
scribes put it, began. In a few minutes, "Bullet Sloop" 
Osier, who was cruising up, down and around, quite acci- 
dentally tripped Fleming, and for this crime was given the 
customary "two". Such obvious injustice to one of his 
comrades thoroughly incensed manager Henderson, and it 
became necessary to buy him a hot-dog in order to keep 
him quiet. 

After Peacock max. had scored on a pass from Russel 
ma., Dave Seagram gave an exhibition of bodychecking 
such as had never been seen before on any rink. He body- 
checked himself into the net and even into the boards, to 
end up at last in the open arms of Pete Spragge. While 
this little skit was being put on at one end of the rink, at 
the other end "Sonja Henie" Armstrong and the Stauntons, 
Tom and Al, were organizing an ice ballet, with excellent 
prospects for a real Big Apple. McCullough broke up the 
party, however, making the score 4-0. 

"Bounchy" Osier, Pete Roper and Dave Mills (an im- 
port from Upper Canada) were a perfect passing com- 



bination. In fact, a gasp went up every time they hit 
their own goal posts. 

Typical of the drama in the closing minutes of any 
game, one can picture the radio announcer saying: "Pete 
Spragge is going around his own goal .... there he goes 
around again .... and again .... now he's on his way out, 
he's at his own blue line, at centre ice, at the T.C.S. blue 
line, he's going to shoot, he's .... hey, where's the puck?" 

And then Mr. Yates compassionately blew the whistle.

In a letter just received from Dr. Orcliard we were 
glad to learn that he and Mrs. Orchard were well and that 
things are quiet in Florence. Dr. Orchard says he saw 
several Old Boys during the summer and remarks on the 
good fortune of the School to have such a loyal body of 
Old Boys, jealous of its welfare.

For a Sing Song 

by J. D. Ketchum ('07-'10) 

A sing-song is a difficult thing 
For those who have to run it, 
For all the masters who could sing 
Appear to think that any old thing 
Will do to make up the flimsy string 
Of excuses for them to shun it. 

I made out a list of artists, and 
Went boldly forth to fetch 'em; 
But some of them simply disappeared 
And others said they "greatly feared" — 
And so the programmes's rather weird 
And chiefly consists of Ketchum. 

The gentleman whom first I saw, 

Who headed the list of names, 

Declared without a moment's thought 

That laryingitis he had caught 

So his singing powers at present were naught, 

And that was Mr. James. 

A more encouraging answer came 

From the next one on the bill, 

For he, although no vocalist, 

Agreed that if I would insist 

He'd recite "Enoch Arden" or "Oliver Twist", 

And that was Mr. Gill. 


The next one interviewed I found 

Just packing up his bag. 

Quite promising he at first appeared 

And vowed he would sing but greatly feared 

A previous engagement interfered, 

And that was Mr. Spragge.. 

The finest tenor on the staff 
Who teaches science to us, 
Forsook the old well-beaten path 
And stated that (say it not in Gath) 
He couldn't sing except in his bath. 
And that was Mr. Lewis. 

The next man whispered in my ear 
In the voice that such tales are told in 
That he only knew one single song — 
A "Bachelor Gay" — and he might be wrong 
But he feared it was just a trifle strong. 
And that was Mr. Boulden. 

So off I went to the Lower Flat. 

At a certain door I yelled hard. 

But a voice which whenever it's heard at nights 

All naughty talkative boys affrights, 

Said "the only song I know is 'Last Lights'," 

And that was Mr. Geldard. 

Now I know you're expecting just one more 
But I'm sorry to say you're wrong. 
There's a limit to everything, people claim 
And I'm not to prove one the same 
For discretion is my middle name 
And that is the end of my song. 


A. M. Bethune {'84-'92) has sent us an old account 
of a fire which originated in the School in 1893. Words 
in italics are statements which he says are not very 


A $10,000 Fire at Trinity College School 

Shortly after 12 o'clock Monday afternoon, some of the junior boys at 
Trinity College School discovered smoke issuing from the roof of that build- 
ing. They immediately gave the alarm, and investigation proved that the 
fire, which probably originated from a defective flue in the chimney, had 
gained considerable headway. 

The scene at the School, when the citizens and firemen of the town 
arrived at the fire, was very exciting. Smoke was issuing in a heavy volume 
from the roof over the main entrance, and all could see that nothing but a 
determined fight would save the building from destruaion. The students 
were excitedly throwing their clothes out the windows, and trunks and bedding 
were being hustled onto the lawn. The contents of every room in the 

school which could be reached through the smoke, was dragged through 
the doors or thrown from the windows. 

The contents of the music room and library were rescued with difficulty. 

The School being out of the water limit, the chemical engines and 
buckets were the only available appliances with which the fire brigade could 
work. The men exercised the greatest judgment in locating the fire, which 
was rapidly working its way under the roof, and the chemical engines were 
applied to good advantage. Firemen, citizens, masters and the students 
worked like Trojans. A bucket brigade was never manned with more 
efficiency, and the work of rescuing the effects was bravely carried on. After 
nearly two hours work with hose, buckets and axes, the flames were subdued. 

Much damage was done to the roof and ceilings of the building by 
fire and water, and the furniture also to a great extent by its hurried re- 
moval from the buildings. The loss is variously estimated from seven to ten 
thousand dollars, besides which the School will, of course, suffer to some 
extent from the inconvenience of the situation. 

Many offers were made to accommodate the students by the citizens, 
while necessary repairs were being made, but it is thought that sufficient 
room will be afforded them in the lower story of the building, which is un- 
harmed, and in the large gymnasium. 

The fire illustrated the weakness of our fire protection, and it is probable 
that the circumstance will lead to the purchase of a fire engine, an equipment 
which is very necessary to our brave brigade. 

The Lou Marsh Memorial Trophy has been awarded to 
Marshall Cleland (1926-29) as the "outstanding sports com- 
petitor of 1937". In 1937 Cleland won no fewer than ten 
international championship riding events against the crack 
horsemen of the world. At the New York Show he was a 


brilliant member of the Canadian Army team that brought 
the international military championship to this country for 
the first time. 

Some people think of riding and jumping as individual 
skills, not to be classed with football or other team sports, 
but that is far from being a true appreciation. Much of 
the military jumping is team work in a high degree, and 
it is to be noted that the spirit of team sportsmanship 
found quick expression when the reporters interviewed 
Lieutenant Marshall Cleland after the trophy award. He 
said he was surprised and delighted; "who wouldn't be? 
But this, like the others, is a team prize. It belongs to 
Timmy and Stu and Doug as much as it belongs to me." 
("Timmy and Stu and Doug" are more formally known as 
Colonel Timmis, Captain Stuart Bate, and Lieut. Douglas 

Those were the words of a fine sportsman as well as 
an "outstanding competitor", and one of whom the School 
is very proud. We offer our heartiest congratulations. 

The note on Mr. Hugh Labatt in the October number 
failed to mention that he was captain of the hockey team 
in 1900 as well as being captain of the football team and 
a member of the cricket team. He later played for London, 
Ont., when that team won the Intermediate Championship 
of Canada. During the war he enlisted as a gunner in 
the 79th. Battery and was sent to Siberia, where he was 
ordered to proceed to Ekaterinberg with a special mission 
to investigate the deaths of the Imperial Russian family, 
but on arrival at Omsk he was transferred elsewhere. At 
this time he saw a good deal of Admiral Kolchak who had 
then made himself Supreme Dictator of all Russia. Mr. 
Labatt is now Vice-President and Secretary-Treasurer of 
his firm, John Labatt, Ltd. 


The following article appeared in the Canadian Church- 
man last June, the third in a series called Bishops, Priests 
and Kings, by O. R. Rowley. 


In rendering honour to whom honour is due, churchmen cannot offer 
a tribute to any one more deserving than Robert Patterson Jellett, general 
manager of The Royal Trust Company, Montreal, who was born at Picton, 
Ontario, on 16th. May, 1881, younger son of the late R. P. Jellett, judge 
of the County Court of Pnnce Edward, and the late Eliza Lilias (Grier) 

The subject of this sketch comes from a long line of illustrious 
ancestors — prominent churchmen and churchwomen. Two of his great uncles, 
on his father's side, resided in Dublin, the one, the Very Rev. John Hewitt 
Jellett was a famous Provost of Trinity College, the other, the Very Rev. 
Henry J. Jellett, was Dean of St. Patrick's Cathedral. His mother, Eliza 
Lilias Grier, was one of thirteen children of the Rev. John Grier, for many 
years rector of St. Thomas' Church, Belleville, Ont. One of her sisters, 
Hannah Grier, widow of Horace Combe, founded the Sisterhood of St. 
John the Divine, Toronto, and was Mother Superior of the Order. Another, 
Rose Grier, was lady principal of Bishop Strachan School, Toronto, and 
still another, Sophia Grier, married Rev. Canon Charles Mockridge and 
gave four sons to the Church— John, at present reaor of St. James' Church, 
Philadelphia, Pa.; Hamilton, rector of All Hallow's Church, Toronto; 
Charles, who died when rertor of a church near Boston, Mass., and William, 
also deceased, who was a missionary in Japan. Of her brothers, the late 
Robert Grier of Chicago, has a daughter, Dora Grier, now Mother Superior 
of the Sisterhood of St. John the Divine, Toronto, and the late Marry Grier 
of Steubenville, Ohio, has a son. Rev. Wm. A. Grier, rector of the Church 
of the Holy Cross, Kingston, N.Y. But there are more church connections 
to come, for R. P. Jellett had a great uncle on his mother's side of the house 
in the person of the late Very Rev. John Gamble Geddes, who was Dean 
of Niagara and rector of Christ's Church Cathedral, Hamilton; also a great 
aunt, Ann Catherine Geddes, who married the Rev. Wm. Macaulay, first 
rector of Picton, who chose the name "Picton" for the town (or village as it 
was then) which had previou'^ly been krovn as "Hallov.eH". Mr. Jellett's 
younger sister, Nora Grier Jellett, married in 1904 the Rev. Derwyn Trevor 
Owen, then assistant at the Cathedral Church of St. James, Toronto, who 
became successively, rector of Holy Trinity Church, Toronto, rector Christ's 
Church Cathedral, Hamilton, Dean of Niagara, Bishop of Niagara in 1925, 
Bishop of Toronto in 1932, and Archbishop of Toronto, and Primate of All 
Canada, in 1934. 

The Jellett family were staunch supporters in Picton of the Church 
of St. Mary Magdalene until the death of Judge Jellett in 1889 when, with 
her sons and daughters, Mrs. Jellett moved to Toronto and for a time 
was housekeeper at St. John's Convent on Major Street, and later was matron 
of Trinity College School, Port Hope. 

Her son, Robert P. Jellett, who was named after his father, was 
educated at the public schools in Picton and Toronto, and finished at 
Trinity College School, Port Hope, where today, in seniority, he is the second 
member of the corporation and governing body. He began his business 
career in 1897, as a clerk with Sampson McCuaig and Company, tea 


merchants of Toronto. A year later he entered the Bank of Montreal at 
Brantford, was transferred to its Toronto branch in 1900, and in 1902, 
entered The Royal Trust Company, Montreal. Twelve years later, at the 
age of only thirty-one, he became assistant general manager and super- 
intendent of branches, and general manager in 1928. 

In 1914, Mr. Jellett married Miss Florence C. I. Meeker, elder daughter 
of the late John R. Meeker of Montreal, whD for twenty-five years, until 
his death in 1925, was rector's warden of St. Martin's Church. Mrs. Jellett 
has charm of manner and exceptional talents of her own; and is a devoted 
churchwoman. They have a son and a daughter. 

Mr. Jellett sang in the choirs of the Cathedral of St. Alban the 
Martyr and St. Stephen's Church, Toronto; Trinity College School, Port 
Hope; Grace Church, Brantford; and for fi%'e years, in Christ Church 
Cathedral, Montreal, of v/hich he was rector's warden from 1933-1936. He 
in joint chairman, with the Most Rev. D. T. Owen, Primate of all Canada, 
of the Restoration Fund of the Church of England, which restored lost 
endo^vments of over one million dollars; honorary treasurer of the successful 
campaign to provide J53 00,000 for Bishop's University, Lennoxville, and a 
trustee of Saint James's Church at Prouts Neck^ Maine, U.S.A., where his 
family spends the summers. His notable addresses in many parishes in the 
Diocese of Montreal regarding the Anglican Forward Movement have been 
productive of much good. In a pamphlet entitled, Our Cathedral, he outlined 
plans under which the chancel of Christ Church Cathedral has been en- 
larged by the moving of the choir stalls forward to their present position 
under the central tower, and many other improvements v/hich are now 
under way. 

In addition to his responsible duties as general manager of Canada's 
largest and most successful trust company, and the valuable services he has 
rendered to the Church, Mr. Jellett has found time to devote his energies 
to other public interests. He is a director and for nine years was presi- 
dent of the Mount Royal Termis Club. He was the founder and second 
president of the Montreal Badminton and Squash Club; past president of the 
Montreal Board of Trade; past president of the Canadian Club of Montreal; 
past general chairman of the 1935 campaign of the Financial Federation for 
Charities; president of the Royal Montreal Golf Club, since 1935; chairman 
of the Montreal Club; past honorary treasurer of St. James's Club; member 
of the executive committee of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce; member 
of the board of governors of the Montreal Council of Social Agencies, and 
a life governor of the Montreal General Hospital. 

No man's career holds out more encouragement to young men seeking 
for success, than that of Robert Patterson Jellett. It shows that honesty, 
courage, industry and business capacity will bring their own reward. His 
uniform success speaks volumes in favour of a young man's striving to lead 
a Christian life in the midst of business cares and struggles. 

Mr. Jellett, who has splendid financial ability, is capable, sensible, 
prudent and courageous. As a citizen, he is patriotic, public-spirited and 
zealous. He is well informed, has great strength of charaaer, good physical 
and mental endurance, and a magnetic personality. It would be difficult 
to find an individual of his position and standing, so perfealy free from 
pride. Salutes to a cultured gentleman, an old friend, and an upright, 
loyal, ardent churchman. 


Professor M. A. Mackenzie ('82-'84) was honoured 
with the degree of LL.D. at the Spring Convocation of the 
University of Toronto. Few Old Boys have achieved such 
distinction in academic hfe as Professor Mackenzie, and 
his influence has been felt and appreciated wide and far 
outside college walls. Though he has retired from active 
teaching as Professor of Mathematics in the University, 
"Mike" Mackenzie can never retire from active service to 
the community at large. Last June he delivered a most 
impressive address to the graduating class of Trinity 
College on the "Price of Freedom", and the address has 
now been reprinted in pamphlet form for the benefit of 
those who were unable to hear it. 

The terms of his presentation for the Degree of Doctor 
of Laws, honoris causa, were as follows: 

To a teacher of distinaion in our own LJniversity and to a man whose 
personal influence over successive generations of students has been deep and 
wholesome, we would express our thanks and offer our tribute of public 
recognition. Michael Alexander Mackenzie, a son of the parsonage, grew 
up in the school of plain living, high thinking and scrupulous honour. 
Educated at the University of Trinity College and at Selwyn College, 
Cambridge, he held a chair of mathematics ir Trinity before University 
Federation and in this University after Federation, for forty-one years. He 
specialized in actuarial science and by his writing and teaching made this 
University a famous and authoritative centre for students in that department 
of knowledge. He was elected a fellow of the Institute of Actuaries of 
Great Britain and of the Association of Actuarial Science of America. 
Institutions and municipalities in all parts of this continent have sought his 
advice and direction on matters of pensions. 

Of the Carnegie Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association, he has 
been a vice-president since its foundation and by the Carnegie Corporation 
he was awarded their Bronze Medal for signal services to the cause of life 
insurance in )936. 

Within this University he has been identified for over twenty years 
with the cause of college and intercollegiate athletics. He has been a 
consistent champion of good spxjrtsmanship and clean athletic contests. To 
play the game, and to play the game with all one's strength for one's side 
have been lessons he has always inculcated. When he retired last year 
from the active teaching staff, the Athletic Directorate placed in the corridor 
of Hart House a bronze tablet to commemorate his character and his 
influence — verily a rare, though richly deserved tribute. 

We are proud that we can count this member of a 
famous family among the large number of those who make 
up the family of T.C.S. 


An article in the Canadian Churchman, on the Church 
of the Holy Saviour, Waterloo, Ontario, said of the 
recent benefactions of the Seagram brothers: 

In the autumn of 1936 Messrs. E. F., T. W. and N. Seagram generously 
contributed the sum of ^15,000 for the enlargement and enrichment of the 
church, both inside and out. Just after the work had been begun early 
this year Mr. E. F. Seagram passed away. The work has been carried 
out under the direction of Mr. T. Wells, architect. The west end of the 
church has been extended, giving a centre entrance to the church, which 
had been the wish of Mr. E. F. Seagram for some years. A forty-five foot 
tower has been erected on the northwest comer of the church. This has 
enabled the construrtion of a robing room for the women of the choir in 
the basement and a choir entrance through the tower. The interior of the 
church has been beautifully enriched with the panelling of the entire nave, 
the placing of a parclose screen, the addition of a richly hand-carved font 
cover; a canop>y above the rector's prayer stall. Preparation has been made 
for the placing of a bell or bells in the new tower sometime in the future. 

As no cornerstone had been placed in the church when originally built, 
a stone has been placed in the northeast comer of the new addition, 
bearing the following inscription: 

To the glory of God this 

Church of the Holy Saviour 

was built 1897 

Consecrated 1898 

Enlarged 1937 through the gifts of E. F., T. W. and N. Seagram. 

Peter O'Brian ('28-'32) has won a much coveted 
honour in being awarded the Sword of Honour at the Royal 
Ah* Force College in Cranwell, Lincolnshire. No other 
Canadian has ever received this distinction and the School 
is proud of his achievement, congratulating him as a 
worthy Old Boy son of a worthy Old Boy father. 

The Sword of Honour is presented to the Flight Cadet 
"who on passing out is recommended by the Commandant 
of the College as having most distinguished himself in 
study, sports, and general influence while in residence at 
the College." In addition to the Sword of Honour, O'Brian 
won the Air Ministry Prize for obtaining the highest marks 
in Imperial War Studies. 

O'Brian entered Cranwell in 1936; he was a member 
of the rugger team and swimming team, and made a record 
of 24 seconds for a fifty-yard swimming race; in his third 
term he was made a corporal and later became under- 


officer of A Squadron. He has now been posted as pilot 
officer to No. 26 Squadron at Catterick, Yorkshire. 

O'Brian called at the School when he was home on 
leave last summer, wishing to show a fellow English officer 
a Canadian Private School. 

Old Boys in Squash Racquets 

Hubert Martin ('27-29) of Hamilton defeated his 
cousin Harold Martin to win the Canadian Squash Rackets 
title in Quebec on January 30th. Congratulations. Hubert

Frey Smye ('28-'34) of Hamilton, both of whom reached 
the Quarter-Finals. 

Harold Martin ('20-'26) retained the Quebec Province 
squash racquets championship, defeating Jess Baldwin in 
Montreal on January 16th. This is his third consecutive 
championship in Quebec. 

Argue Martin won the consolation tournament in the 
Atlantic squash meet at Atlantic City last month. Another 
Martin victory in squash.

year he took a four months' motor trip through central 
Europe and the Near East. 

Bethune Smith ('16-'23) has been created a K.C., a

R, T. Nichol 

R. T. Nichol was a master at T.C.S. from 1881-1891. 
An Old Boy writes that he was "a kind-hearted dis- 
ciplinarian who earned the affection of many boys. An 
excellent teacher, he managed to inspire in some of us a 
love of Latin and a holy horror of 'false quantities'. His 
cane was handy, and one good whack promptly corrected 
each mispronunciation. 

Standing with his Bible in his hands on the choir 
steps, he was an earnest, dramatic and picturesque 
preacher, a ready orator both in word and gesture. I have 
heard many sermons, but none so interesting as his." 

When he left the School, he became Chaplain to an 
Anglican sisterhood in New York, and later went over to 
Rome. Then he accepted a post in the Metropolitan 
Museum of Art, where he was for many years the heraldic 
expert. He v^/^as seventy-eight years of age. 

Legh T. Walsh 

The Canadian Press reported on February 13th., from 
Victoria : 

Legh A. Walsh, prominent Calgary barrister and Secretary of the Law 
Society of Alberta, died in his hotel-room here Saturday from a heart seizure. 

Mr. Walsh was the son of the late Hon. William Legh Walsh, 
former Lieutenant-Governor of Alberta. The former Lieutenant-Governor 
died at his Victoria home January 14. 

Born in Orangeville, Ontario, Mr. Walsh came to Calgary as a boy with 
his parents. He was educated at the Trinity College School, Port Hope, 
Ontario, and admitted to the Alberta Bar in 1920. He was appointed King's 
Counsel in 1933. 

Mr. Walsh served overseas during the war with the 28th Battalion and 
was wounded while serving with the Canadian troops in France. He was a 
prominent sportsman, and last year was President of the Alberta Golf 

His widow and two young children, Anna, 10, and William Legh, 5, 

Mr. Walsh came to Victoria a fortnight ago in connection with the 
settling of his father's estate. 

Legh Walsh was a most popular boy at T.C.S. , and 
after he left he won friends wherever he went. When the

try it, you'll be doing it all the 
time! Good with any Ginger 
Ale — Best with Ice Cream. 



Headmaster visited Calgary two years ago, Legh had 
arranged every detail, inviting all Old Boys in the district 
to a luncheon, and giving up his entire day to the affairs 
of his old School. In other western cities he was not only 
well known but greatly beloved. His untimely death has 
stunned his friends; he will be sorely missed. Our heart- 
felt sympathy goes out to his wife and children, and to his

The Record is published six times a year, in the months of October, December, 
February, April, June and August 


We have noticed with some dismay, of late, the 
apathetic attitude of the School in general towards some 
of our minor sports. Of these, two particularly come to 
mind: swimming and track. 

At this School we possess a fine pool, and some equally 
good swimmers, but to offset all this, we have an indifferent 
and half-hearted regard for anything pertaining to com- 
petitive swimming. It is true that the pool is put to good 
use for individual enjoyment and for life saving. There 
are few better things that a boy can be taught, than how 
to save other people's lives, but if this is to be done well, 
a greater proficiency in swimming should be acquired. 
There are many boys who are content either to take part in 
one sport for a season, then more or less give up voluntary 
physical activity, or to do little or nothing at all through- 
out the year. If these people are satisfied that they are 
doing all they can and should do, then to them we say no 
more. But may we assure those who feel they could, and 


would do more if they might find the opportunity, that 
they need look no further. There is a chance for a boy 
who has this feeling to do for swimming, what one or 
possibly more boys have done for squash, and leave the 
School with the thought that he has accomplished some- 

We feel that exactly the same argument may be 
advanced in speaking of track. Some boys indulge in this 
important branch of athletics merely as an escape from 
cricket. There is little use in appealing to them, but we 
do appeal to those who have either ambition for themselves 
or for the School, to help remedy a condition that need not 
be. The School has attained an extremely enviable posi- 
tion in the so-called minor sports, squash and gymnastics, 
and there is no reason why we must hang back in others.

Sunday, February 27th.: The Rev. V. C. Spencer 
preached in Chapel. The topic of his sermon was missionary 
work in the diocese of Mid-Japan. Mr. Spencer spoke 
particularly of the progressiveness of the Japanese, as well 
as their desire to learn. 

Sunday, March 6th. : A Memorial Service for the late 
Dr. A. Mackenzie, Headmaster of the Grove School, Lake- 
field, was held in Chapel. The hymns included "Fight the 
Good Fight", and "O Happy Band of Pilgrims". The first 
lesson was from the Wisdom of Solomon: "But the souls 
of the righteous are in the hand of God" ; the second lesson 
was taken from the Pilgrim's Progress, how Mr. Honest 
passed through the river, and then Mr. Valiant-foi'-Truth, 
"and all the trumpets sounded for him on the other side." 

In his address, the Headmaster said: 

Alec Mackenzie was a master at this School from 1892 until 1894, when 
he left to become head of Lakefield Preparatory School. For forty-four 
years he was the centre of the life of that sister school, the hub around 
which all the spokes revolved, and he became one of the few really great 
schoolmasters of this country. 

Many generations of boys came under his charge, and he shaped and 
moulded their characters, giving them guidance and direction with loving 
care, and inspirbig them by his noble example of Christian living. 

Sometimes this earth is blessed with a mortal who seems to embody 
all that is fine and strong and manly, and withal has patience and under- 
standing with those less gifted. Dr. Mackenzie was such a man. One 
did not have to know him well to realize the strength of character that was 


his; simple and unaffeaed, loving and kind, he yet embraced the highest 
wisdom and knew how to be firm and unrelenting when a question of 
principle was at stake. One instinctively felt the strength of his character, 
for it radiated through him out to all those with whom he came in contact. 
Strength of body and mind, honesty of purpose, and above all and through 
all a deep but unostentatious spiritual life were perhaps his most abiding 

There could be no suggestion of sham about him, no toying with the 
matter in hand. If anything were worth doing at all, it was worth doing 
with all one's heart and soul. That was his guiding philosophy. And he 
never spared himself. Always he had time for one more job; never did 
he lose an opportunity to lend a helping hand, to assist some lame duck 
over a stile. He gave himself happily, seeing the humour in life and 
somehow mixing it with underlying truth, bringing new hope and comfort 
tc those in difficulties. 

A lover of the woods and lakes and hills, and of all games, he knew 
that people were not educated by books alone but by coming into close 
contact with other lives, and with the outdoor world, — in the elemental life 
and moving spirit in the wind, whispering through the trees or bellying out 
the sail; in the eternal beat of the waves on shore, one after one, in motion 
everlastingly; in the wild and shy creatures in the woods; in the running sap 
in spring time; in the glorious freedom of the body robed in the velvet water 
of a secluded pool; in the rhythm of a cross country race along the side 
roads, the warm blood coursing through the veins, every muscle matched 
against the distance, or swinging along in gay abandon over the boundless 
ice of the lakes; he knew and felt it all. In the spring and summertime 
you would find him in his garden, tending his flowers, and showing you 
with pride some particularly fine bloom. But just as likely you would 
come on him in his study, writing to the parents of his boys, or to his old 
boys or friends, always in his own hand; or sitting by his fire with a pipe 
and a book in his hand, taking a keen delight in a vivid and well written 

Always he was giving himself to others; little children loved him for 
he played with them in such genuine pleasure; in the class room there 
was work to be done and it was put in hand without delay. There was 
no place in his world for indolence and sloth; he was a believer in grow- 
ing through effort. Per ardua ad astra. through difficulties to glory, was 
a guiding principle of his life. But just the same he would cancel school 
some afternoon if there were a fine sheet of ice on the lake, or he would 
concoa a practical joke against himself or against some boy who was feel- 
ing his oats too much. 

And with all his fun and love of the outdoors and good fellowship, 
there was ever that precious realization of the spiritual core of all life. 
What a rugged disciple of Christ he was; as strong as a rock he stood 
foursquare against the pampered hypocrisy of this world, for he was a man 
of deeds, and no unnecessary words. In another age he would have been 
a willing martyr for the faith. 

T.C.S. DANCE: 1938. 


There are too few leaders of the stamp of Alec Mackenzie; but he will 
live on in the lives of those who knew him and he will be the closer to 
them if they reflect his life or need his help. 

Sunday, March 13th: The Chaplain preached. In his 
sermon he pointed out how the Cross was a stumbling 
block to many who were not prepared to make the sacrifice 
of a less selfish life. 

Sunday, March 20th: The Rev. E. R. James, of To- 
ronto, preached in Chapel. He emphasized that we must 
not become unappreciative, but that we should strive to 
make the best of all our opportunities, particularly those 
we enjoy in attending this School.

A weekly discussion on topics of general interest in 
the world of politics has been started under the guidance 
of Mr. Morse. The International Relations Club meets 
every Sunday evening; and after listening to the 15-minute 
C.B.C. radio talk on the week's international happenings, 
a very informal discussion takes place. There are no 
officers or elected members in the club, and everyone is 
welcome. Mr. Morse presides, however, and gives his 
help in straightening out difficulties encountered in the

Iflfe Insurance as a Career 

Address by Mr. A. G. Nairn 

It is not the "yes-man" but the fighter who succeeds, 
according to Mr. Nairn, who gave a very interesting talk 
to the upper forms on March 4th. He spoke of making 
a career in any walk of life, before dealing specifically v-dth 

He told his hearers that to-day there are more poss- 
ibilities than ever for a career, but to achieve success many 
difficulties must be overcome. It is the young man who 
fights hardest, holds most strongly to his convictions and 
displays most determination, who is likely to succeed 
rather than the "yes-man". 

Turning to Life Insurance itself, Mr. Nairn said that 
the agency department of the business had been sadly 
neglected in the past, but now the training of agents is 
being given much more attention. 


The Life Insurance business is to-day, in this country, 
one of the largest. It has increased very greatly in the 
last ten years, but Mr. Nairn is convinced that it is not yet 
at its peak. The Insurance companies have, he told us, in 
the past year paid out more money than the Canadian 
government has spent in relief. 

Before we enter any business, Mr. Nairn urged us, we 
must take stock of ourselves. We must go into a company, 
not with the thought of the money to be earned always in 
mind, but with the thought of service to those over us and 
to the public. Those who do this are usually the most 
successful business men.

Preparing for Business as a Career 

Talk by Mr. A. G. Partridge 

Ability to speak in public was stressed as an important 
aim of education by Mr. A. G. Partridge, President of the 
Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. of Canada, when he spoke 
to the upper forms on March 11. 

Mr. Partridge advised his hearers to consider it most 
desirable that they should be able to express themselves 
clearly, especially through the medium of public speaking, 
and dwelt also on the importance of being able, when the 
time for real work came, to choose the vocation specially 
suited to their talents. He illustrated the necessity of 
doing some form of work with a most amusing story, and 
he emphasized the importance of using one's initiative and 
talent for thinking out improvements that could be made 
in the organization. To this end,he said, one ought to have 
a general idea of the working of the different departments. 
We are most grateful to Mr. Partridge for giving us 
valuable advice based on his long and most successful 
career in the business world.

Concert by Mr. Earle Spic«r 

Dancing gave place to magnificent song during the 
week-end of February 18th., when Mr. Earle Spicer, noted 
baritone, entertained the visitors as well as the School with 
an enjoyable and outstanding recital of Old English and 
Early American Ballads. Among the varied selections 
were "The Bashful Lover", "The Crocodile" and "The 
Three Ravens". There were many encores before Mr. 
Spicer and his excellent accompanist could escape at the 
end of the concert.

Shrove Tuesday 

The annual pancake toss was held on Tuesday, March 
1st. this year. The struggle for the greatest weight of 
putty seemed more fierce than in previous years, and Sea- 
gram representing the Sixth Form finally emerged the 
victor, with Locke second and Warner third. 

G. del R. 



The dance week-end has been expressed poetically and 
pictorially in this number of the Record, and what more 
can be said in prose, we do not know. The visit of our 
guests was extended until Sunday afternoon, and we think 
this precedent should be followed in future years. The 
girls stayed in Trinity House, and the long and usually cold 
walks to and from the Junior School were done away with. 

The greater part of the invasion descended upon us 
from Toronto, though two boys did accomplish the im- 
possible in having girls from Montreal. Afternoon tea 
was served in the Guild Room, after which the girls were 
shown our rooms. They, (the rooms), approached some 
semblance of tidiness for the first time in many weeks, and 
it took us nearly a month to get them back to a comfort- 
able normal. 

The Dance was, as usual, held in the Hall, which was 
suitably decorated in the School colours. The sitting-out 
rooms were much the same as in previous years, with a 
popular addition in the Carnegie Room. The orchestra 
provided very good music, and more boys than usual ap- 
peared for every dance. 

Among the guests were Bishop and Mrs. Renison, 
Mrs. A. G. Partridge, Mr. and Mrs. F. H. Irwin, many of 
the School staff and their wives, and some Prefects from 
Upper Canada College. 

During the evening George Renison was observed 
dashing madly about with a camera and flashbulbs; some 
of the fruits of his labours may be seen elsewhere in this 

On Saturday morning a late breakfast was in order 
and in the afternoon everyone watched a very tired First 
Hockey team bow to St. Andrew's, when even ardent 
feminine support was of no avail. The evening topped off 
a perfect day with a movie, a song recital by Mr. Earle 
Spicer, and an informal dance. 


On Sunday morning, after chapel, those whose feet 
still felt strong departed to Rice Lake, where they 
thoroughly enjoyed skating and sleigh-rides, while the rest, 
ha\'ing acquired a certain "vis inertiae", remained at the 
School. Lunch, coffee at the Lodge and then, all too soon, 
the trip to the station and sad farewells.

First Debate: Saturday, February 12th. 

This was one of the shortest debates of the year, but 
nevertheless there were some very good speeches. The 
motion was "That the Canadian Government should impose 
a boycott on Japanese goods." Kirkpatrick i., Mood and 
Hancock spoke for the affirmative, and Peacock i. and 
Magee for the negative. 

The affirmative started off by saying that Canada 
should boycott Japan first and that the other nations would 
follow. Peacock i. came back at them with the fact that 
Canada did not buy enough from Japan to make any differ- 
ence anyway. From this the debate drifted off along other 
lines and finally ended with three very good speeches from 
the floor by Fleming, Jemmet and Hayes. The voting 
showed the affirmative had swayed the majority of the 
house to their side. 

— J.L.G. 

Second Debate: Saturday, March 5th. 

Ross and Hart i. spoke for the affirmative in this debate, 
which turned out to be one of the best of the year. The 
motion was "That Germany should have her former colonial 
possessions restored to her", and Vipond and Flock put up 
the opposition. Hart i., the first speaker of the evening, 
put forth the point that Germany needed her colonies for 
expansion, and for raw materials. The opposition then 
said that the colonies were not valuable so far as raw 


materials were concerned, and that Germany did not know 
how to govern her colonies after she got them. 

Warburton then spoke from the floor and made the 
best speech of the evening. Gray followed with a very 
good speech and then Fleming and Langmuir made two 
fiery speeches. After a long, but very interesting, discus- 
sion the votes were counted and the negative won by a 
majority of twenty-five. 

— J.L.G. 

Third Debate: Saturday, March 19th. 

"That instead of the Pilgrim Fathers landing on Ply- 
mouth Rock, Plymouth Rock should have landed on the 
Pilgrim Fathers", was the Resolution that provided one 
of the most amusing debates we have attended in many 
years. It possessed both serious and lighter aspects, and 
speakers made good use of both. 

Hobbs began the proceedings with a hurried ten-foot 
slide to his seat, (on his seat), whereupon Mr. Morse call- 
ed upon Giffen to open the debate. His spectacular open- 
ing was enough to floor everybody, and his whole speech 
was highly amusing. In the course of it, he pointed out 
the corruption of the English language by giving an imita- 
tion of how an American gangster would describe the 
coming of the Mayflower. 

Irwin ma., the leader of the opposition, stressed the 
pioneering of the Pilgrim Fathers, and at the same time 
asked us where we should be without "swing". Although, 
he admitted, there are some very nice Canadian girls, 
"Who," he asked, "has not heard of the American Girl?" 
(Some cheers, many boos.) 

After Mr. Morse had reminded the House that this 
was a debate, not a hockey game, Vallance, speaking for 
the Government, returned to the more serious side of the 
subject, pointing out the prevalence of crime and mass pro- 
duction, which was responsible for so much labour trouble. 


Warner, opposing the motion, refuted Vallance's con- 
tention that crime was so rife, charging that the news- 
papers were apt to afford it too much pubUcity. 

At this point, the debate tended to develop into a war 
between the Northern and the Southern States, the former 
being supported by the Opposition, the latter by the GJov- 
emment. The motion being thrown open to the House, 
Warburton, Gray, Harstone, Thomson i. and Hancock 
spoke for it, while Jones i., Renison, Gripton, Fleming and 
Langdon opposed it. 

Renison said we should appreciate the Pilgrim Fathers 
for the blessing they gave us in Thanksgiving dinners, while 
Giffen lamented the fact that they had given us "pork and 
beans." From this time on, the thread of discussion 
strayed, and everything from "swing" bands to slavery and 
the United States peace policy was discussed. 

A vote was taken, and the motion declared lost by 
39 to 31. — c.o.L. 

Fourth Debate: March 29th. 

Departure from normal procedure marked this debate, 
as masters led on both sides, and visitors took part in the 

The motion was: "That this House supports the foreign 
policy of the present British Government, namely 1. of 
avoiding definite commitments in central Europe, and 2. 
of working for an accord with Italy. 

Mr. Morse, in proposing the motion, declared that it 
was unnecessary for the British government to make 
definite commitments in central Europe, and that further- 
more it was impractical and dangerous. A return to the 
idea of balance of power was needed, and above all the 
building up of a strong German-Italian alliance must be 
avoided; and the new balance of pov/er in Europe must not 
become crystallized into two definite camps, as happened 
in 1914. Great Britain would not sidestep legal obligations, 
and would protect France and Belgium.

Sitting: — S. Mclvor. 


Leading for the opposition, Mr. Parr quoted the British 
Prime Minister's declaration of his objects, notably "peace 
with justice" and suggested that the long series of Jap- 
anese, German and Italian aggressions condoned could 
hardly be called justice. It had to be recognized that there 
were already two opposed camps in Europe, and it was 
dangerous not to call a halt to aggression, for every success 
of the dictators built up their strength for the ultimate 
attack on Britain and France that was their declared aim. 
To try to make agreements with Mussolini was absurd, for 
his history left no hope that any such contract would ever 
be kept when the dictator had got what he wanted in the 

Mr. Yates, in seconding the motion, pictured Italy as a 
hardly used nation, whom we should endeavour to under 
stand, and pointed out the commercial advantages to both 
sides in the proposed agreements. 

Mr. Davidson pointed out that France and Belgium 
had reason to feel very doubtful of British reliability as a 
result of recent events, and urged that Britain should lead 
in building up a real system of collective security. 

On the debate being thrown open to the House, Dr. 
Glover took the floor to point out that Britain had tried 
to present a firm front, but could not continue without 
support from the other members of the League of Nations. 

Mr. Taylor made a strong plea for a firm stand by 
Britain on the side of just peace, pointing out that war 
would not have broken out in 1914 if the British govern- 
ment of the day had firmly stated an intention to support 
France and Belgium. 

Mr. Humble declared that nothing had been gained by 
the victors in the World War, and that every means must 
be used to presei-ve peace. 

Langmuir, Vvdth the secretarial assistance of Gray, re- 
futed several of the points made by speakers for the gov- 
ernment. Wallace and Harstone spoke from the Govern- 


ment benches, Gray, Renison and Lambert from the other 
side of the House. 

Speaking from the visitors' benches. Dr. Pochon up- 
held the motion, feeling that present British policy was 
best calculated to save the present generation from what 
his own had had to face in 1914. Mr. H. R. S. Ryan opposed 
with a vigorous onslaught on the recent British record 
in foreign policy. 

Mr. Parr and then Mr. Morse each had the customary 
three minutes to close the debate before the vote was 
taken after a short recess. 

During the counting of the vote, the Headmaster 
spoke briefly. As Speaker of the House, he had main- 
tained a neutral attitude during the debate, but now felt 
he must express the opinion that Great Britain was com- 
pelled to play for time, and that temporarily, at least, 
principle must be sacrificed to expediency. Reluctantly he 
gave his support to the motion. 

On the division, the motion was declared lost by a vote 
of 59 to 55.

All rain and mud, 

And clouds that scud 

Across the sky, 

Like thieves that from the law must fly. 

Upon the hill, 

All stiff and still, 

The pines in rank 

Are oft obscured by lake mists dank. 

The School's a blur, 

The tower a spur, 

Both disappear 

As through the trees the mist draws near. 

Thus Spring must come. 

But God, grant one 

Sunshiny ray.

EPISODE: 1918 

The land was hushed. Distantly a lark, slowly 
dropping in the dying rays of the sun, sang his vespers. All 
the sounds of war were muted, as though in awe at the 
calm beauty of the evening. 

To the Reverend William Harding, enjoying his even- 
ing pipe in the solitude of an old trench, just behind the 
front line, the evening was very beautiful. 

Reclining against an earthen wall, the padre contem- 
plated the wisp of blue-gray smoke from his pipe, mount- 
ing vertically past the soft brown of the opposite wall of 
the trench and disappearing into the blue void of the 
heavens. At times, he decided, life was very good. 

The padre was relaxing into a delicious torpor when 
the dull "crump" of an exploding shell, far down the line, 
brought him again to reality. "Beastly war" he muttered. 
And thus set off a train of thought. 

He would have to get a note off to the mother of that 
poor lad they brought in last night. A young subaltern. 
Had been good-looking. What a machine-gun, plus three 
days in a shell-hole, could do to a human body ! And that 
young Bavarian who'd died in his arms. Just a boy Hed 
kept calling for Maria. The doctor had had to give him 
an overdose. The best thing. 

This war was beastly. Absolutely necessary, of course. 
It would be over soon. He had a good record. Ought 
to get a nice little parish. He shouldn't think of that, 
though. But was he absolutely certain that he was doing 
right? Ought he to be baptizing and blessing and bury- 
ing men? Telling men that God was fighting with them? 

The full incongruity of the situation suddenly struck 
him. Was it not tragic to think of two great armies, out 
here in the mud, each praying to the same God and both 
sure that He was on their side? But which side was He 

The fear which he had suppressed for months was 
conquering him. Was he really doing right? Should he 


encourage men to fight, to grovel, to kill each other in a 
man-made war? Was it his Christian duty? 

He now realized that it wasn't. He knew there was 
nothing in the Bible to justify war. Had not Christ said, 
"All they that take the sword shall perish with the sword"? 
Had he been hypocritical ? No, not that. He had simply 
swallowed his doubts. The German people were, after 
all, no more to blame than the British, The respective 
governments were more to blame. He saw his course clear- 
ly now. To preach against war. To volunteer as a 
stretcher-bearer, to assist in a hospital. But not to take 
part in unjustified murder. Never more to tell men they 
had God's blessing to murder one another 

The gray-clad German sniper sighed and stretched 
wearUy. All day his special rifle had been ti-ained on the 
low part in the old trench. Only a few more minutes and 
it would be too dark to stay longer . . . Frieda would be 
rocking the baby to sleep now. How far away Munich 
seemed! Again he stretched, then resumed his wait- 


With a shock the padre realized that it was nearly 
dark, and that his pipe was cold. Well, it was decided. He 
started back along the winding trench. He was profound- 
ly happy. He could not fully express his thoughts. The 
task before him was hard, but somehow he felt eased of 
a burden, and at the same time uplifted. 

Absently, he stooped a little as he passed the low part. 
Not quite enough .... he never felt the sniper's bullet. . . . 

They found him a little later. He lay as though asleep. 
A strangely beautiful smile parted his lips. One hand was 
upraised, as in the act of blessing. The other lay across 
his eyes, as though to shield them from a light that was 
too strong.

Hug-h Crossley leant over the rail of the great ocean 
liner. He was a very ordinary Englishmen, and, being 
extremely quiet, rarely was noticed. But among- those who 
knew him at all, there was one characteristic which at- 
tracted attention: he never took his left hand out of his 
pocket in any circumstances. Of course some of his 
intimate friends knew the reason for this, but, as he had 
few real friends, the reason was not generally known. 

This particular night he was certainly not in a cheer- 
ful state. He had just learned that a stock in which he 
had invested most of his savings had crashed and that 
there was no hope of a recovery. Besides this he was 
badly in need of five thousand pounds, and there was no 
possibility of collecting even fifty within the next month. 

He had just reached a stage in his thoughts which 
seemed to sug-gest that the only possible waj/- to get out of 
the mess was to jump overboard, when he was tapped on 
the shoulder by a middle-aged man who was of medium 
height and entirely bald. Much to Hugh's surprise the 
man introduced himself as Ernest Slatterly, the rich Ameri- 
can millionaire who was travelling to England, but v/ho be- 
fore now had kept strictly to his state room. 

Hugh did not know why he was tapped on the shoulder 
but Mr. Slatterly soon explained the reason. As Hugh 
was about to speak he suddenly said: 

"I hear you have lost a great deal of money on the 
stock market." 

Hugh was greatly amazed, not by the knowledge of the 
older man, for he knew how gossip can travel on a ship, 
but by the fact that Mr. Slatterly should talk to him about 
it. Before he had time to put these thoughts into words 
the millionaire began again. 

"I feel rather responsible for yoiir loss as my company 
had something to do with 'Red Head Mines'. If there is 
anything I can do to help . . . . " 


Hugh assured him that there was nothing and was 
about to wander off, when the American again broke in. 

"Well, anyway, come to my cabin, I'm throwing a little 
party to-night and it would be a pleasure to have you with 

Hugh was not really in the mood for a party but as 
there was nothing better to do he decided to accept the 

When he arrived at the right state room he found 
most of the guests already assembled. The atmosphere 
was thick with cigar smoke and Mr. Slatterly's friends 
struck him as a singularly obnoxious group of men. 

They were in the middle of a game of poker which 
was being played for exceptionally high stakes. But for 
all that the play was very poor and Hugh decided that he 
could win some money by entering the game. Just as he 
reached his decision he noticed Mr. Slatterly looking at him 
with a curious glint in his eye. And suddenly, it seemed 
to Hugh, that he had seen that look before, but where or 
when he could not remember. 

However he put these thoughts to the back of his 
mind and took a hand in the game. From the very start 
he won heavily, but all the while there seemed to be a 
triumphant smile in the eyes of the American millionaire. 

Suddenly, at a time when Hugh had most of the money 
and chips on the table, Mr. Slatterly, who was sitting on 
Hugh's left, jumped up and said: 

"I regret to say that I think Mr. Crossley has been 
cheating! I would like somebody to look in the left poc- 
ket of his jacket." 

And suddenly, as he said this, Hugh recognized him 
as a man, who at that time had been known as Irving 
Petersen, whom he had had run out of camp for stealing 
when they were mining in the Klondyke. Evidently he had 
recognized Hugh earlier in the trip and had determined 
to get his own back. 


Not a trace of these thoughts showed on his face as 
one of the men came forward and pulled an ace and two 
face cards from his pocket. He did not seem in the least 
surprised when he saw the cards but said in an even voice: 

"Everybody here knows that I couldn't put those cards 
in my pocket with my right hand. Is that agreed?" 

There was a murmur of assent from the men present 
and Hugh went on. 

"And now you can see that I couldn't do it with my 
left hand." 

As he said this he pulled his left hand from his pocket 
and held it up. There was a gasp of surprise, for the 
four fingers and the thumb of his left hand were missing. 

"Therefore", Hugh went on, "the dirty trick that was 
done to me must have been done by the person on my left, 
Mr. Slatterly, and I hope you raake him pay in full for his 
dastardly attempt." 

As Hugh left the cabin that evening he was in a much 
better frame of mind than he had been at any time on the 
trip. He had won enough money to tide him over the 
next few weeks and also he had got out of a very nasty 
mess through the luck of that two-month-old accident to 
his hand; the first good thing those missing fingers had 
ever done for him.

Exmoor has always held a strange fascination for me. 
Perhaps "Lorna Doone", read when I was still a child, 
created on an impressionable memory a sense of adventure 
and romance. Again, it may have been a picture or a 
story that I do not remember. But as I trudged along 
the dusty road that leads from Exeter over the wild and 
rugged moors, I recalled with awe the savage deeds of the 
outlaw Doones, and lost myself amid childhood recollec- 

It was my vacation. I had packed a light rucksack, 
bought my train ticket from London to Exeter, and finally 
set out on a walking tour through the broken country. My 
road led across the moors, winding up and down the hills, 
losing itself, and then reappearing amongst the gorse on 
further slopes. Passing milestones and signposts, I was 
happily conscious of a feeling of exhilaration to be out in 
the open and away from the artificiality of the city. 

My water flask had run dry and I was looking forward 
to a draught of beer at some wayside pub. As I breasted 
the rise of one of the innumerable mounds, I saw lying in 
a peaceful valley a few clustered cottages. This was the 
village of Chaldon Herring. 

Stopping at one of the larger houses, I enquired where 
I might procure a glass of beer. The moorfolk are ever 
hospitable and without more ado an old shepherd, the 
master of the house, drew from a well where it was kept 
cool a jug of home-brew. The drink revived me and I 
spent some time talking with the old fellow, who, though 
not physically over strong, had certainly not lost his 
powers of conversation. In a quaint Devonshire dialect, 
he informed me that I best bide where I was for the night, 
there not being another village for some miles along the 
road. This was rather annoying, for it was a very pleasant 
evening for walking, so I asked him if there were not some 
small shack or cottage before the village, where I might ob- 
tain accommodation. The only place, I learnt, was Devers- 


ham Manor, which was not a fit place for any God-fearing 
man to stay. Apparently there were numerous lurid 
stories connected with the place. My interest however 
was aroused and no dissuasions on his part could prevent 
me from setting out for the infamous spot before night- 

I left the village and made my way quickly out of the 
valley; for dusk was beginning to fall and I had no wish 
to spend the night without some form of shelter. 

It was nearly dark when I reached my destination and 
in that light the old, gabled, and lonely house certainly 
agreed with the description the villager had given me. In- 
deed, as I approached the door I had some misgivings 
about entering the place. I told myself not to be a fool 
and rang the bell. The door was at length answered by 
a wizened old woman. She held the lantern almost in my 
face and asked me what I wanted. I replied that I was 
on tour and required a lodging for the night. As I spoke, 
I noticed that she formed my words with her lips. Then 
I realized she was stone deaf. She seemed to understand 
my meaning, however, for she ushered me inside and I 
found myself in a dark hall. 

The whole place gave me an eerie feeling. Though 
there was no dust about, and the rooms were furnished, 
the house was musty and dead. The caretaker appeared 
to me well in keeping with the manor. Dressed completely 
in black from head to foot, moving noiselessly up an oak 
staircase, carrying a lighted candle in her hand, she re- 
minded me of Lady Macbeth. My imagination began to 
work. Hadn't the shepherd said there were queer tales 
abroad concerning this ghostly mansion? Perhaps I was 
another unsuspecting Duncan being led to the royal cham- 
ber. A heavy door closed behind me and I was alone in 
my room. The only illumination was from the candle 
that the woman had left. It was guttering low and threw 
my shadow in strange relief on the walls of the room. Out- 
side on the moor, the wind had risen quickly, as it often 


will along the south coast of England. The whine of the 
wind through a many-crannied roof added an even more 
unreal feeling to the now haunted atmosphere. 

I repented a thousand times that I had not stayed at 
Chaldon Herring. The curtains moved. There was some- 
one behind them! I rushed across the room and pulled 
them open. There was nothing there; only the window 
was slightly open and a draught was coming through. As 
I turned, my shadow on the wall struck me cold with 
terror. The next moment, I had opened my door and 
was running down the stairs. The front door was un- 
locked. Thank heaven! 

I ran out into the road, and for a second I looked 
back. The old woman had come to the doorway with her 
lantern, and there she stood silhouetted against that 
haunted manor laughing laughing. 

She was raving mad.

''Off the Record'' 
The Destruction of T.C.S. 

(With Deepest Apologies to Lord Byron) 

The female comes down like a wolf as a rule, 
And thus did they come to the Dance at the School. 
All done in their best, amid suitcase and trunk. 
They helped us come forth from the life of a monk. 

There was tea in the Guild Room to bolster us up, 
And, balancing sandwiches, saucer and cup. 
Said the girls of their figures "We must keep them slim; 
So you see, to us, eating's a horrible sin." 

The Angel of Dance had imbued one and all, 
There was "truckin' " and waltzing, no flowers on wall; 
And the eyes of the dancers waxed sleepy and sad. 
And their hearts but once ( ?) heaved, for some "got it bad." 

A certain soft light and a manner so coy 
Appeared more than once in full many a boy; 
And a week had scarce passed when, with face wreathed 

in grins. 
The Bursar reported she'd sold eight School pins. 

A movie, a concert, an informal dance. 
Set high in the clouds every kind of romance. 
Some wept and some laughed, but we all were subdued 
As we waited the going of such pulchritude. 

The train she came in, and the train she went out. 
And on it were angels, you need have no doubt. 
So rather than do what is best, and forget her, 
You'll pardon us now if we go write a letter.

A Chemical Experiment 

The first thing the uneducated person will ask on see- 
ing this heading is, of course . . . what is a chemical ex- 
periment? And there we must admit you have us stumped. 

We started off by saying that it was an experiment 
to do with Chemistry, but this didn't seem to get us any 
further. We next looked up the word Chemistry in the 
dictionary. It was explained as the science of the elements 
and their composition and behaviour under varying condi- 
tions. Then we met with another shock. For, having 
taken Chemistry for a number of years, we had at least a 
hazy idea of what our Master's definition of the word was, 
and to our amateur minds it certainly didn't seem to click 
with the dictionary's idea. Now we don't like to say 
anything that might be taken the wrong way, but the 
dictionary we refer to has a very good reputation. 

It might be well to put in a little note here. ''The 
characters of this outstanding piece of Literature are en- 
tirely imaginary and bear no resemblance to any persons, 
living or dead, and no resemblance is to be inferred." 

Again we resume the thread, knotted in many places, 
but still a thread, of our narrative. Having come up 
against a blank wall twice we decided to ask a bright 
Chemistry student to describe to us an experiment which 
had been done in his particular class at some time during 
the year. The first one we asked didn't seem to come 
under the category of bright. His answer, after much 
stuttering and stammering, was that he didn't think they 
did experiments in his class, at any rate he didn't remember 

This set-back only made us more determined to gain 
our objective and we began a systematic search round the 
School to find someone who remembered something about 
a Chemical experiment. 

Our second victim again proved too strong for us by 
saying that he didn't take Chemistry. The third said he 
skipped most periods and those he didn't skip he slept. 


Finally after nearly fifty disconcerting answers, which 
had practically destroyed our faith in human nature, we 
found one person who said he remembered an experiment 
clearly. This figuratively knocked the wind out of us, 
but we recovered in time to ask him to describe it in de- 
tail. He complied and here is his version of a Chemical 

"Mr took a lot of stuff, mostly made of glass, 

and put it together with a name like a something burner 
under the stuff. Then he poured some coloured junk into 
a glass thing v/ith a funny name and poured some yellow 
something, I forget what is was, on the top of the coloured 
stuff. A lot of white smoke appeared and a thing v/ith 
a long name was made." 

After this we felt we could stand anything, but we 
thought it better not to tempt fate too much. We decided 
to call the whole thing off and take stock of the information 
we had gained. 

This we did, and found we hadn't gained any. Thus 
we came to the conclusion that the best explanation of a 
Chemical experiment was still, apparently, an experiment 
to do with Chemistry.

At Port Hope, February 19th. 

In spite of the great support and loud cheering by the 
girls who had been at the dance, the School team was un- 
able to overcome the strong opposition of S.A.C. in this 

The game got away to a fast start, both teams play- 
ing to their utmost in the first period. It was not long 
before a penalty to McCullough gave the St. Andrew's 
team a chance to use a "ganging attack", but Mclvor in the 
T.C.S. net was too good during the rush. Tliroughout 
the rest of the period the puck was rushed alternately 
from one end of the rink to the other, but very good v/ork 
on the part of both the goalkeepers kept the period score- 

S.A.C. had a slight edge in the second period, and 
broke into the score sheet after about five minutes of play. 
It was a neat effort, MacDonald ii. taking the pass from 
Bennel for a close range shot. The pace was slowed down 
a great deal in this period by the soft ice, which was now 
quite cut up. In the middle of the period the School had 
several chances, but failed to do anything with them, 
though time and again it just didn't seem possible that 
McLellan would stop the puck with the T.C.S. forwards on 
top of him. 


In the third period, McCormick, McLellan and O'Brien 
led the S.A.C. attack, and O'Brien presently scored a well 
earned goal. A penalty shot by Peacock seemed to give 
T.C.S. a chance to open the scoring, but his hard drive was 
deflected into the comer, Then, with less than three 
minutes to go, MacDonald i. on a solo rush managed to 
slip the puck past Mclvor for St. Andrew's third goal. 

Final score: S.A.C. 3, T.C.S. 0. 

— J.L.G. 

At Aurora, February 23rd. 

The School evened its account with St. Andrew's in the 
return match, played at Aurora. A fast game ended in a 
win for T.C.S. by the odd goal in seven. 

Fleming first put the School in front, in the opening 
period, when his blue-line shot had the S.A.C. goalkeeper 
beaten all the way. Then Warburton and Cayley both 
missed chances, with, only the goalie to beat, but the former 
eventually scored on a pass from Turcot ii. MacDonald 
led some threatening rushes for S.A.C. and finally scored 
from a close-in position just before the period ended. 

Fleming and Warburton each got their second goal 
early in the second period, on passes from Mood and Pea- 
cock i., respectively. Then for a time the School passing 
became disorganized, and St. Andrew's were only stopped 
by Mclvor's brilliance in the net. 

For most of the third period the School team were 
kept on the defensive by frequent S.A.C. five-men attacks. 
These netted two goals, but the St. Andrew's marksmen 
could not tie up the score. 

Mclvor was outstanding in the School net, with Flem- 
ing and Warburton playing a fme game in front of him. 
MacDonald and O'Brien were the leaders of the St. 
Andrew's attack. 

Final score: T.C.S. 4, S.A.C. 3.

At Port Hope, February 26th. 

The Old Boys called themselves "Cardinals" for this 
game, having somewhere acquired an outfit of bright red- 
and white sweaters. Bill Seagram was their able organizer, 
manager, coach and publicity man. 

The game opened with a quick goal, on a shot from 
the blue line by Peacock. This was followed by a dangerous 
rush by the Old Boys, who almost beat Taylor in the net. 
Fleming made a counter rush and scored the second goal 
of the game. A few minutes later, Warburton passed to 
Russel, who returned the puck for Warburton to bang it in, 
making the score 3-0 for the School. For a time the puck 
hurtled about the Old Boys goal, Warburton nearly scored 
again. Peacock missed by inches, but finally the whistle 
ended the period in the midst of the excitement. 

The second period began with more pucks flying 
around the Old Boys net, but Pat Cassels was too good to 
allow any scoring. A sudden breakaway by three Old 
Boys, with only the goaler to beat, nearly ended in a goal, 
but the whistle blew for off-side. Half-way through the 
period, Warburton tallied again with a magnificent shot, 
but although the team continued to press menacingly, they 
could not raise the score beyond that point. An Old Boy 
rush was stopped by a great save by Eric Taylor and Russel 
and Warburton raced back, but could not beat Pat Cassels. 
The period ended with the School leading 4-0. 

There was no scoring in the last period. Once the Old 
Boys seemed certain to put one in on a breakaway, but 
Taylor brought off the most sensational save of the game. 
The visitors were again pressing dangerously when the 
game ended. 

There were many bumps, and the play was very ragged 
at times, but the back-checking of the team in general, and 
of Cayley and Fleming in particular, saved the day. 

For the Old Boys, Pat Cassels and Stu Osier stood 
out, and for the School, Cayley, Fleming, Warburton and 


Tajdor played very well. McCullough was unable to play, 
owing to a previous engagement, at the U.C.C. dance. 

Great sayings: Bill Seagram's first words as he enter- 
ed the changing-room after the game were "I'm very 
proud of you boys, very proud of you." 

The teams: — ■ 

T.C.S. — Taylor i., Fleming, Turcot i., Cayley 1., McAvity i., Mood, 
Riissel ii., Warburton, Peacock i. 

Old' Boys: — Pat Cassels, Stu Osier, Johnny Coulson, Pete Osier, 
Pete Spragge, Don Galloway, Al Staunton, Tommy Taylor, Tom 
Staunton, Dave Seagram; Bill Seagram, manager; Jock Spragge, 

assistant manager; "Warnie"' Thomson, trainer. 


At Toronto, March Xnd. 

The School met its third defeat of the season playing 
a fast-skating Upper Canada team, at the Maple Leaf 

From the opening v/histle U.C.C, taking full advantage 
of their familiarity with the large ice surface, pressed the 
School hard, and in a few minutes Tumbull stickhandled 
his way throiigh the defense to score the first goal. The 
School fought stubbornly, but their opponents were too 
good, and soon Mara scored on a single-handed effort. This 
was followed almost at once by a goal by Clarke, putting 
U.C.C. three up. Peacock and McCullough helped to keep 
the School's end up with fine rushes, but just could not 

In the net, Mclvor was sensational, but in spite of his 
good work two more goals were scored, one by Carpenter, 
and one by Stafford on a pass from Mara. 

The second period was brighter from the School's 
point of view, as U.C.C. only scored two goals, both obtain- 
ed by Stafford. Russel managed to break loose, but his 
shot was smothered by a U.C.C. defense nian. Peacock 
shot from close in, and took Lawson by surprise, but again 
failed to find the net. Thrusts by Warburton and Mood 


were likemse of no avail, and the period ended with U.C.C. 
holding a 7 to lead. 

At the beginning of the third period Mclvor again 
rose to great heights, only his efforts stemming the Upper 
Canada advance; but the remainder of the game was dom- 
inated by U.C.C. and four more goals were scored, Lang 
getting two and Godefroy and Stafford one each. 

The score was certainly one-sided, but no disgrace to 
the School players. Unused to such a large rink, they 
were up against a really fine team, all of whom played 
excellent hockey. Against superior play, all the T.C.S. 
team fought hard. 

Final score: U.C.C. 11, T.C.S. 0. 

— C.O.L 


At Port Hope, March 5th. 

Played on the smaller rink at Port Hope, the second 
game with Upper Canada was a closer affair than its pre- 

After only a few minutes of close play, Stafford scored 
with a hard shot from the blue-line, giving U.C.C. the first 
advantage. Control of the play for a time went from team 
to team, until Warburton took the puck round the College 
defense and passed to Russel, who scored. 

For some time the School held the edge, but then 
U.C.C. began to press again, and only the brilliant work of 
Mclvor in the net kept them from scoring more than one 
goal. As the period ended, Russel and Warburton repeat- 
ed their combination, and the score was tied 2-2. 

In the second period, U.C.C. went well into the lead, 
scoring four goals to the School's one. Peacock first put 
the School on top, scoring after a clever solo rush; but the 
feat was promptly duplicated by Mara and the score was 
once more tied. Then U.C.C. dominated the play until the 
end of the period, and in spite of the good work of Mclvor 
and McCuUough, Douglas obtained two goals and Lang one. 


It began to look as if the School might tie the game 
up in the first minutes of the third period, after Cayley had 
scored on a rebound from Lawson's pads. Warburton and 
Russel kept the puck in U.C.C. territory for some time and 
did everything but score. Fleming missed several chances, 
but when U.C.C. finally did break loose, Mclvor was there 
to stop them. 

Then, in a mix-up in front of the net, Mclvor was hurt 
and had to leave the ice. 

For a time Warburton continued to break up the U.C.C. 
rushes, until at last Turnbull beat Taylor with a long shot. 
After that, although everyone fought to hold the score 
down, the College were able to bang home two more goals 
before the game ended. 

Final score: U.C.C. 9, T.C.S. 4.

The Players 

McCullough, J. Captain of this year's squad, "Joe" exerted 
a quiet and steadying influence at all times on his 
team-mates. Throughout the season he played a 
consistently good game on defence and at times showed 
exceptional skill in clearing. A reliable safety man 
who, with improved stick-handling would be a wel- 
come asset to any team. 

Peacock, J. With his shift from defence to wing for- 
ward, Peacock came into his own this year with an 
enviable scoring record in which assists weighed 
heavily. Undoubtedly the best stick-handler on the 
team, he also possessed a shot whose speed and drive 
left many a goalie helpless. Even in his occasional 
"off" days in mid-season, he remained an aggressive 
checker. We predict further hockey success for him 
in the near future.

proved himself to be a keen worker both in practices 
and games. Handicapped by his weight he was often 
the unfortunate target of opposing defencemen. Sure 
to be an invaluable fonvard for the '39 team. 

Fleming, A. (Defence) : Playing his second year on Bigside, 
Andy showed a marked improvement over last year. 
His consistency in being able to block and to co-operate 
with his team-mates in a rush made him always a 
scoring threat. 

McA\ity, H. (Forward) : This year McAvity was the only 
new-boy who joined Bigside. playing centre on the 
second line. He showed good stick-handling ability, 
and fast skating, though not a consistent back-checker. 
Bigside looks forward to his return next year. 

Mclvor. S. ((^al) : The fire and zeal which "McGinty" put 
into his net tending never failed to stimulate his team- 
mates to the utmost. Mac turned in many sensational 
games and his never-say-die spirit greatly helped to 
make the season a successful one. 

Mood, W. (Forward) : Playing his first year on Bigside, 
Bill won his position at left wing on the second line 
through consistent hard checking. Although a hard 
worker he had not quite mastered the art of affective 

Russel, H. (Forward) : This year fortune turned Hugh into 
a real scoring threat over last year, backed as well by 
his ability to back-check. Hugh has plenty of speed, 
and with further stick-handling ability should be an 
invaluable player to any team. 

Taylor. E. (Goal) : A product of last year's Middleside 
team, Eric was spare goaler on Bigside. He showed 
his gameness by returning to practice duties, after 
sustaining an injury to his eye from a skate. In his 
one game played this season, Bigside was assured of 
a capable substitute to fill Mclvor's place next year. 


Turcot, E. (Forward) : Elliot, like his brother, lacked 
speed, but gave his best at all times. His year's 
experience on Bigside will be a benefit to him for 
future T.C.S. games. 

Turcot, J. (Forward) : Although used sparingly through- 
out the season, John's willingness to try, made him a 
valuable substitute. With this year's experience in 
addition to a little more speed, he should prove to be 
a reliable member of next season's team. 

Warburton, J. (Forward) : With the persistence of a pile 
driver, "Cotton" led his team-mates in scoring this 
season. His first year on Bigside proved to be a 
successful one, and although at times his stick- 
handling was weak, his aggressive speed and ability to 
back-check fast made him invaluable to the team as a

The 1938 edition of the Third team opened its active 
season on January 26th., when St. Andrew's came to Port 
Hope. The game was a typical "first of the year" affair, 
witJi very ragged play and little organization. S.A.C. 
came out on top by a score of 4 to 3. Johnson and Diver 
played best for the visitors; Bryson scored all three T.C.S. 

Three days later the Thirds were cheered on at Upper 
Canada College by a group of Old Boys, among whom were 
such stalwarts of the past as "Gamey" Stratton, "Hec" 
Lithgow, "Buck" Pearce and "Stub" Lawson. Their 
support was well calculated to give the present representa- 
tives of the School that extra "Yumph". The puck was 
first netted by Higginbotham, and another goal was short- 
ly scored on a good solo rush by Waters. Bagshaw and 
Trent succeeded in equalizing for the College, and the 


game ended in a 2-2 tie. The ice was badly cut up and 
play far from smooth. 

The second defeat of the season was suffered at the 
hands of St. Andrew's, by a score of 4-2. The ice was 
about the best of the season, and the play of the Thirds 
showed a marked improvement. Diver, Johnson and 
Goodeve again starred for S.A.C., while Seagram and 
Somerville played "heads up" hockey for the School. The 
trip back was rather startling, as various and sundry 
floods were encountered, and a few miles from Port Hope 
one of the cars ran out of gas. However, the boys were 
back in time for breakfast. 

After two games had been lost and one tied, the 
team achieved more success by soundly defeating Picker- 
ing, 7-1, on February 12th. Johnson, Higginbotham, 
Seagram (2) and Somerville (3) scored goals for the 
School; the Thirds outplayed their opponents, but Lemon, 
McNally and Phipps made brilliant efforts to increase the 
Pickering score. 

Although it ended in a two all tie, the best game of 
the season was that played at Lakefield, on February 
26th. Lithgow and Higginbotham scored for the School. 
while the star of the whole game was Maclean, who play- 
ed an outstanding role in the Lakefield net. 

Last but not least was the inevitable House game, 
which was diplomatically tied three all. The highlight of 
this encounter was Tom Seagram's sensational goal tend- 
ing, which took place (believe it or not) while the regular 
goalkeeper was serving a penalty. 

Honourable mention should be made of Tom Alex- 
ander's whirlwind body-checking, which at times endanger- 
ed his own team-mates, but was always good for a laugh. 
When three Hatfield girls turned up to watch a practice, 
"Chuck" Lithgow did, with two encores, the nose-dive act 
which is so familiar in the gym. (Editor's note: There 
was a hole in the ice.) 

— C.I.P.T. 



After two weeks of hard puck pushing in preparation 
for a good season of hockey, the Fifths opened their cam- 
paign by jolting down to Toronto to play U.C.C. on January 
26th. The game was played at the College on fairly slow 
ice, and the T.C.S. combination showed its superiority over 
the opposing team by defeating them 6-2. The goals were 
scored by Cayley ii. (2), Crawford, Redpath, and Best (2). 

After a week's rest, U.C.C. came to Port Hope for the 
return game, which proved a very hard-fought match, 
ending in a 5-5 tie. Hardaker, MacDonald, Wood, and 
Bagshaw scored for the visitors, Cayley ii., Redpath, Avery, 
Finley and Crawford for T.C.S. The most surprising 
feature of this game was the rare sight of Prefects clean- 
ing the ice after the second period, much to the delight, 
no doubt, of certain new boys in the vicinity. 

On February 12th., the Fifths went to Lakefield to 
play the Grave Seconds. This turned out to be fastest and 
toughest game of the year. The ice was fast, and the 
two teams were evenly matched ; it was touch and go from 
first to last. T.C.S. managed to outpoint the Grove by 
4 to 3. Goals were scored by Cayley ii., Finley and 
Redpath for T.C.S. and by Rose, Crampton and Roberts 
for Lakefield. Beardshaw in goal played an outstanding 
game for the School. 

The last inter-school game was played at Port Hope on 
February 22nd., when Lakefield turned the tables, running 
away with the score at 8-3. B^inley, Hart ii. and Cayley 
ii. scored for T.C.S. On the very slow and soft ice, the 
Fifths' passing failed to "click" in this game. 

The final game of the year, and the most eagerly con- 
tested, was the House game, won by Brent House 4-3. 
Brent scorers were Cayley ii., Redpath and Finley; for 
Bethune, Robertson, Black and Best, 

The many attempts of Littleside to "wangle" trips 
were highly amusing, if hardly successful.

Although material was lacking this year, Mr. Dixon 
managed to mould a team out of those available that did 
credit to his coaching. Enthusiasm could not compensate 
for experience, however, and the team lost the majority 
of its games. Curtis, Irwin, Partridge and Swinton were 
the only old Colours who were back in harness this year. 
Gripton, Thomson, and Harstone completed the list of the 
experienced. Langdon, Wood, Giffen, Harvey and McCon- 
nell came to the first practice with nothing to offer but 
a desire to learn, and were initiated into the mysteries of 
basketball by Mr. Dixon. Partridge was Captain of the 
team and Swinton Vice-Captain. 

The first game of the season was against the Port 
Hope Garrison Club. The School emerged victorious from 
this tussle by a 50-43 score. Irwin and Swinton played 
Vv^ell and led the scoring. The long shots and passing of 
the Garrison Club's Fraser and Quantrill gave the School 
several worried moments. 

The School next took on the Cobourg Seniors, but were 
unsuccessful against their opponents' dead-eye marks- 
manship. Accustomed to a small gym, the Cobourg players 
continually loosed shots from centre floor and sank enough 
of them to win 37-21. Swinton put the ball through the 
hoop the most times for T.C.S., and Irwin and Partridge 
played their usual reliable game on defence. The two 
chief Cobourg threats were Leonard and Guy. 

The most closely contested games of the season were 
the two battles with Pickering. Our opponents won the 
games at T.C.S. and at Pickering by scores of 38-36 and 
28-27 respectively. The superior height of the Pickering 
team was used to great advantage. Curtis played well in 
the first game but was prevented from playing in the re- 
turn match, and in the S.A.C. games, by a foot injury. 
Swinton, however, was in his best form at Newmarket and 


shone in both his passing and shooting. Wood and Rogers 
starred for Pickering in both games. 

A two-game series was played with S.A.C. too. This 
team was notable because some of the basketballers were 
also first-team hockey players. In the first game, played 
at S.A.C, MacDonald, their captain, turned in the highest 
score for his team after playing a hard game of hockey 
for the previous hour. His performance led the S.A.C. 
team to a 40-13 victory over the School. Our quintet got 
on the wrong foot in this game and played far belov/ their 
usual form. The game in our own gym. also went to St. 
Andrew's, but the School put up a better fight and held 
the score to 33-25. The outstanding playing of the second 
game was done by Seaton of S.A.C, while Gripton supplied 
Irwin with the passes which enabled him to score the most 
baskets for the School. Unfortunately, doctor's orders 
prevented Swinton from playing in the second game. 

The last game of the season took place with the Juniors 
of Etobicoke High School. Thomson engineered this game 
with his former school, and in his zeal to show the boys 
back home what brand of basketball we play at T.C.S. he 
led the scoring. The boys back home managed to play 
an even better brand, however, and compiled a score of 
26-19. Sturreys turned in an excellent game for Etobicoke. 

Despite the fact that the team did not cover itself with 
glory, it was still a good basketball season. There is such 
a thing as losing well. The players put everything they 
had into every game and managed to enjoy themselves, 
have good, healthy exercise, and gain valuable experience. 
Next year, there promises to be more material for form- 
ing a team; in fact, the future looks rosy in the field of 

A second team was formed this year from a number 
of begmners who were not needed for the first squad. They 
played well against Cobourg Juniors and the Pickering 
Seconds. Vallance captained this squad, with the able 
assistance of Cartwright i. 

— P.J.G. 


The Players 

Partridge (Captain) : An excellent Captain. Had the 
faculty of keeping the squad harmonious and happy. 
Definitely a good team player, making little effort to 
star himself. Very fast and quite strong defensively. 
His passing and shooting could be improved upon. 

Swinton, (Vice-Captain) : Did a very good job in aiding 
Partridge. The team was very fortunate in having 
two such splendid leaders. A very good, all-round 
basketballer. Fast on his feet, a sure ball handler 
and an excellent shot, particularly from under the 
basket. Had the peculiar failing of not shooting often 

Chirtis (forward) : Though unable to play in three games 
owing to injuries, he was rather an outstanding 
player when he chose to be. His long shooting and 
ball handling were very efficient, but his under the 
basket work was sometimes faulty. 

Cripton (forward) : For a small man was quite surprising 
to all. His own hot-headedness often stopped his 
usually good shooting, and his lack of height made 
his ball handling rather difficult. More experience 
should make him a good player. 

Irwin i. (guard) : Offensively a great player, but at times 
faulty in his ball handling and defensive work. A 
very good scorer in both long and short shots, which 
made him the highest point man for the season. 

Langdon (guard) : A natural-bom guard who should be 
able in a few more seasons to show the old fellows 
how to play this position. 

Thomson i. (centre) : On the offensive a very steady 
though not spectacular player. A good shot but rather 
erratic in his ball handling. Should be a useful man 
for next year's team. 




A great deal of praise is due to Giffen, McConnell, 
Harvey, Wood and Harstone for the keenness they showed 
in learning the game. Though not on a par with the rest 
of the team in playing ability, they should in the near 
future turn out fine players. 

W.F.S., D.G.P. and G.H.D. 


First Team: — Partridge, Swinton, Irwin i.. Griplon. Thom- 
son i., Curtis. 

Second Team: — Langdon.

Fifth Team: — Cartwright i., Vallance, Thomson ii., Earle 

Extra Colours: — Jemmett, Evans. 


With only three members remaining from last year's 
First Gym. Eight, the competition was keen for the other 
five places. Mood gave a fine performance, losing only 
eight points in taking the first place. Two new boys, 
O'Hanlon and Hart ma., made the team, which should augur 
well for future gym. teams.

The Squash team has had a very successful season. 
Though not winning many matches, they gained valuable 
experience in playing against some of the best players in 

Playing the Racquets Club in Toronto, the team came 
up against a very strong set of opponents. Landry put 
up a great fight against Vickers, and won two of the 
School's three games. The team would like to express 
their thanks to their hosts for their kind hospitality, in- 
cluding the excellent dinner at the York Club.

VOL. 41. No. 4. 

APRIL 1938. 




This is the Easter number of the Record officially, 
and because that Church festival is quite late this year 
we have already experienced some very fine spring-like 
weather. Most naturally, our thoughts are apt to turn to 
green fields, cricket and tennis rather than to reflect upon 
our winter's doings. However, that appears to be our 
duty, so do it we must; and actually there is much of a 
pleasant nature to recall. 

Although the weatherman has been unkind to the ski- 
ing enthusiasts (only one or two days being suitable), the 
hockeyists have fared better. On but three or four days 
was it too mild for games or practice. Hockey has there- 
fore occupied the limelight of our extra-curricular activ- 
ities. A summary of the performances of the first and 
second teams appears elsewhere in this number. 


Stamp collecting and photography appear to have the 
most devotees at present. The writer is delighted with the 
excellence of the results achieved in the darkroom and the 
rather intelligent acquisition of stamps by so many new 
collectors. We are indeed grateful to Miss Smith for her 
kindness in coming over on Sunday mornings. 

The carpentry shop is also turning out some very use- 
ful articles, which are a credit to their makers. 

Ping-pong appears to be suffering from a seasonal re- 
lapse, and that hardy perennial, billiards, is temporarily 
stopped while we await repairs to the talple. 



First team colours have been awarded to the follow- 
ing: — Parr (captain), Lyall, German. Waters. Hope i.. 
Beament, Huycke. Greene, Wilson; extra colour, Mac- 

First Team Gaines 

At Port Hope, February 12th. 
This was the hardest fought game of the season. The 
School team, smarting under a previous defeat by Lake- 
field of 11-3, gave their utmost, and by sheer determina- 
tion held the visitors to a tie at 5 all. 


At Toronto, March 5th. 

The great thrill of this game was the fact that it was 
played in the Maple Leaf Gardens. The School team 
were much improved over their previous game with U.C.C. 
and despite the much larger ice surface, which was 
strange to them, gave a very good account of themselves. 
It was anybody's game until the final bell. Upper Canada 
were victorious by 3 to 1. 

Second Team Games 

For the first time in several years, the School had a 
Second hockey team, and did remarkably well by winning 
all four of their games. The matches and results were : — 

At Lakefield, February 9th., won 6-1. 

Bewdley, at Rice Lake, February 11th., won 2-0. 

Cubs, here, February 18th., won 10-0. 

Lakefield, here, February 26th., won 6-1. 

The following played for the Second team: Lambert 
(captain), Knapp i., Joy ii., Britton, Anderson, Moorhouse, 
Campbell, Warner, Dignam, Walcot, Monro. 



House Matches 

Two house matches v/ere played. The first ended in 
a 3-all tie. In the second game, Orchard House gained 
the victory with a score of 3 to 2.

Visit of the Archbishop of Fredericton 

The School was honoured by a visit of Archbishop 
Richardson of Fredericton on Monday, March 14th. After 
a tour through the building, he very kindly addressed the 
boys of the School. He spoke of the necessity of per- 
severance in our tasks at school and elsewhere, illustrat- 
ing his point by some very humorous stories. The half- 
holiday for which he asked was duly celebrated the follow- 
ing Monday. 


The School has seen three movies during the half- 
term: "Swing Time", "AU Baba Goes to Town" and 
"Gold is where you find it." 

Through the kindness of Mr. Briden, members of 
Class I A Upper were taken on a most interesting tour of 
the Nicholson File Factory on Monday, March 21st. Each 
visitor was given as a souvenir a most useful product of 
the plant. 

The excellent weather of the past week has been par- 
ticularly enjoyed by the boys through the medium of soft- 
ball. So far, the games have been most informal, but 
productive of much fun. 

It is alleged that the noise of creaking rafters noticed 
on Wednesday afternoons is caused by members of the 
dancing class learning the intricacies and evolutions of the 
"Big Apple." 

Preparation for the production of "General Wolfe", by 
Raymond Card, are under way, and it is hoped that the 
play will be staged shortly after the Easter holidays. 

The School enjoyed two delightful afternoons of skat- 
ing at Rice Lake when a thaw was followed by a sudden 
freeze-up v-athout the encumbrance of snow. 


Currie (J.S.) 





About sixty Old Boys, including a contingent from 
Toronto, gathered at the Royal Connaught Hotel, Hamilton, 
on the night of February 25th. for a dinner, at which a 
Hamilton Branch of the T.C.S. O.B.A. was formally in- 

The whole function, arrangements for which had been 
in the hands of a committee consisting of John Alden, 
Gf€orge Lucas, Pat Bankier, and Stephen Ambrose, was a 
weU organized and highly successful affair. Much of the 
credit for it was also due to Messrs. S. S. DuMoulin, Argue 
Martin and H. H. Leather. Those present included repre- 
sentatives of almost every vintage since 1873. Many Old 
Boys had not met one another for years, and a most 
hilarious spirit prevailed. The highlights of the evening 
included speeches from Mr. Ketchum, who was the guest 
speaker, and Mr. S. S. DuMoulin, President of the O.B.A.. 
and the near-extermination of Harry Symons in a trunk- 
murder case. 

Following the toast to The King, Argue Martin, who 
presided, called on Mr. S. S. DuMoulin to propose The 
School. Mr. DuMoulin thanked the Old Boys present who 
had made the local organization possible, and referred to 
the last five years of the School's history as epochal. He 
urged all Old Boys to join the Association, visit the School, 
and interest their friends in sending their boys there. 


Responding to the toast to the School, Mr. Ketchum 
recalled the recent vicissitudes in its history — its two fires 
and its financial problems, now fortunately past. He re- 
joiced that Hamilton should be the centre of the third 
branch of the O.B.A. He then proceeded to show that, 
because of its ability to train boys physically, spiritually 
and mentally for leadership, as well as to break new 
ground in the realm of education, the private school had 
won its place in Canadian democracy. He ended by quot- 
ing, as an ideal in education, the words of Col. John 
McCrae: "What I spent, I missed; what I got, I lost; what 
I gave, I have." 

The following officers of the Hamilton Branch of the 
T.C.S. O.B.A. were elected unanimously: 

President — John Alden, Jr. 

Vice-Presidents — Pat Bankier, Richard McLaren. 

Secretary — George Lucas. 

Treasurer — Fred Smye. 

Auditors — Colin Glassco, John Campbell. 

Advisory Board— Rt. Rev. L. W. B. Broughall, H. H. 
Leather, D'Arcy Martin, W. A. Spratt and Victor Vallance. 


Old Boys are reminded of the annual re-union which wiM take 
place at the School on Saturday, June 4th. The programme will 
include the Annual General Meeting of the Association, a luncheon, 
Old Boys' Cricket Matches, the First Team match with U.C.C, and 
other activities. The School can offer accommodation overnight to 
a limited number of Old' Boys, and this will be gladly reserved in 
order of application.

Many of the new Old Boys' ties have been noticed at recent 
Old Boys' gatherings. They look very well, and one has heard 
nothing but praise for the design and quality. Old Boys are re- 
minded that they may be bought from O. H. Williams, 4,3 Scott 
Street .Toronto, at $1.55, post paid.

with pairs of black club stripes set off by a narravv white stripe, 
with ptiirs of black club stripes set off by a narrow white stripe. 

A notice appears elsewhere of the birth of a son to 
John Alden. Jr., ('28-'35). The Hamilton Spectator notes 
the interesting fact that this birth maintains a three 
hundred year old tradition in the family, of the first child 
being a boy. going back to the John Alden referred to in 
Longfellow's "Courtship of Miles Standish". 


Jim Cutten ('28-'37) has entered the Imperial Leaf

Hugh Henderson ('30-'36) was awarded the prize at the 
University of Toronto Drama Festival for the best in- 
dividual acting. He took the lead in "Miss Elizabeth Ben- 
nett", and also acted in "St. Joan", both produced by the 
Trinity College Dramatic Society. His award was in the 
form of a travelling kit. The following appreciation of 
his acting appeared in Saturday Night, March 12th: 

Shaw's "Saint Joan," finely directed by Professor G. Wilson Knight, 
was the Trinity College presentation. Hugh Henderson played "Robert de 
Baudricourt" brilliantly. He looked well as the military, handsome, ener- 
getic squire, and flung himself with a proper impetuosity into all he said 
and did. His voice immediately sowed the arrogance, credulity and 
obstinacy of the man who, "having no will of his own, disguised the de- 
fect by storming terribly." Not for a moment was he out of character.

Scott Medd ('24-'28) was recently reported in the Press 
as doing very promising work in art at the Royal Academy 
Schools in England. He won the first Landseer Prize and 
Bronze Medal for two paintings of a figure from life, and 
the S. J. Solomon Silver Medal for two compositions in 
colour. The standard may be judged by the fact that 
the critic of the London Times described the students' ex- 
hibition as "the most encouraging one of the kind that we 
remember to have seen." In 1936 Scott Medd won the 
second Adwin Abbey Scholarship, which is valued at $1,250 
and extends for two years. 

Trevor Tait ('07-' 13) writes to say he has three sons,

Dr. J. A. L. Waddell, whose death is recorded in this 
issue, was internationally famous as an engineer. An 
obituary in the press recorded that: 

Dr. Waddell had designed and erected more than TO lift bridges in the 
United States and abroad, had designed scores of bridges in Canada, the 
United States, Mexico, New Zealand and the European countries. 

An honorary member of the American Society of Civil engineers, he 
had conferred upon him in 1931 by that body the Clausen medal for the 
man v/ho in ihe preceding half century had done "the most to advance the 
interest of the engineering profession in the United States." Author of 
numerous texts, treatises and technical volumes, he had been presented by 
the same society with the Norman medals for his scientific monographs. 
One of the mor.t prized honours ever conferred upon him, however, was his 
election to the Authors' club of London, composed of the flower of modern 
English writers. 

Though his best known Canadian bridge is that over the Eraser river 
at New Westminister, B.C., he was in charge of building 19 bridges for the 
Canadian Northern Railway in 1912. 

Born at Port Hope, January 15th., 1854, Dr. Waddell was a son of 
Robert Needham and Angeline Waddell and his father was then sheriff of 
the United Counties of Northumberland and Durham. He attended public 
school and Trinity College School here and, at the age of 16 years, he was 
sent to China by clipper ship because of delicate health as a result of 
intense work as a student. 

After recording some of Dr. Waddell's achievements 
in professional practice as and as professor at Rensselaer 
(Troy, N.Y.) and in Japan, the article concludes: 

Considered in Japan as the foreign technician who contributed most to 
the development of Japanese engineering., he was decorated by the emperor 
for his excellent work as teacher with the Order of the Rising Sun. He 
was again decorated by Japan later on with the Order of the Sacred Treasure. 
He was equally honoured by King Victor Emmanuel of Italy, and had con- 
ferred upon him five orders of knighthood by Italy, Japan, China and Russia.

The Record is published six times a year, in the months of October, December, 
February, April, June and August 


Looking back upon the Seventy-third Year of the 
School's history, we feel in all sincerity that it has been the 
best for some time. Although we cannot reflect upon a 
championship football team or an undefeated hockey team, 
something less obvious has evinced itself to an ever-in- 
creasing extent in the form of "school spirit". We do not 
propose at this point to define it, we merely state that it 
has come to stay, we hope. 

The School reached a great height in squash and 
gymnastics this year, and through the most generous gift 
of a distinguished Old Boy, our tennis supporters will soon 
come into their own. Our potential possibilities in the 
field and track were brought out on Sports Day, and we 
trust these will not be left undeveloped. 

Academically, the past year has probably proven 
much the same as previous ones. Work is bound to ap- 
pear, and as a rule we dispose of it either philosophically, 



indifferently or assiduously. Our own sympathies lie with 
the philosophical, though our results coincide more with the 

When this issue of the Record comes off the press, the 
school year will be practically finished. So may we say 
that, although the exact desires of the School with regard 
to the Record have been a trifle vague, we (its staff) have 
tried to do what we could, and we close by thanking the 
very select group who did help us to make the School 
magazine readable. 


/. O'Hanlon 



Sunday, April 3rd. The Rev. Fr. Loosemore preached 
in Chapel. 

The theme of Father Loosemore's final address was 
"The Church". He began by expressing a desire to lay 
low the thought that the Church is dead. This thought 
was conceived, he declared, by those who seek to find a 
reason or excuse for not attending the services. He urged 
us to go to church, and to take everything we had — our 
mind, our soul, our body — and offer all to God. Admittedly 
it is a heavy sacrifice, but then, God repays much more 
than we ever give. 

"The church is slipping and is losing its grasp" say 
many people. Father Loosemore hotly denied this state- 
ment. But suppose, he argued, it is slipping, what are we 
doing to help it regain its proper place? Are we pushing 
when it gets "stuck in the mud?" 

As another case of false rumour, he cited the supposed 
differences in the church, as between Catholic and Pro- 
testant, and pointed out, that, though they may appear to 
be working at cross purposes, they were in reality working 
towards a common end. 

It was with much pleasure that we welcomed Father 
Loosemore to the School again after an absence of some 
three years. We are deeply indebted to him for his inspiring 
sermons and we hope that this is not the last time he will 
visit us. — j.A.w. 



On Saturday evening, April 9th. the Confirmation 
Service was conducted in the Chapel by the Right Reverend 
A. R. Beverley, M.A., D.D. The Reverend A. G. Emmett 
and the Chaplain assisted in the service. 

The laying on of hands was followed by the Bishop's 
address, in which he said "Habits are ten times nature." 
He outlined five habits — frequent, unselfish prayer ; reading 
often from the Bible; faithful worship; regular attendance 
at Communion Services; and giving wholehearted service 
to God. These he strongly urged the candidates to cultivate 
and keep. 

The hymns sung were: "Soldiers of Christ Arise"; 
"Come Holy Ghost our souls inspire"; the School Hymn — 
"Blest are the pure in heart", in which the treble descant 
to the last verse was strikingly fitting and inspiring; "O 
Jesu I have promised to serve Thee to the end", which was 
sung by the Choir only, the second verse being effectively 
sung by J. McCullough as a solo, and the third by the 
trebles; and "He who would valiant be".

Sunday, April 10th: The Preacher in Chapel was the 
Rev. A. G, Emmett, of St. John's Church, Port Hope. 

Mr. Emmett congratulated those who had been con- 
firmed the previous evening on "enlisting in the Army of 
the Great King" on AprU 9th, a great day in Canadian 
history, the anniversary of the battle of Vimy Ridge. How- 
ever, he warned them that they might have to fight 
spiritual battles every bit as gruelling as Vimy. 

The sermon was rendered particularly vivid and inter- 
esting by reminiscences of Vimy, at which battle Mr. 
Emmett had himself been present. 

— K.G.P. 

On Simday, May 1st, the Seventy-third Birthday of 
the School, the Rev. Provost Cosgrave preached in Chapel. 

After speaking of the seventy-three years of far- 
reaching influence which the School had exerted en those 
who had gone through it, Provost Cosgrave went on to 
stress the value of "Wisdom". "It cannot be valued with 
the gold of Ophir. It is not just an accumulation of facts, 
but wide knowledge and experience. A man with wisdom 
has a clear-cut conscience which will lead him in the right 

path."^ ,

. Sunday, May 8th. The Cadet Corps paraded to St. 
John's Church. The Rev. B. W. Horan, of Wycliffe College, 
Toronto, preached the sermon. His text, taken from the 
Second Book of Samuel, was: "And David longed and said 
'Oh that one would give me to drink of the water of the 
well of Bethlehem which is by the gate.' " 

— J.A.V7. 

The Chapel sermon of Sunday, May 15th, was de- 
livered by Rev. C. J. S. Stuart, rector of St. Thomas' 
Church, Toronto, and an Old Boy of the School. 


The text of Mr. Stuart's sermon was, "If ye then be 
risen with Christ", (Colossians, 3: 1). He warned us against 
regarding Easter merely as the symbol of a far-distant 
Resurrection, because, he pointed out, we could not really 
properly believe in anything so far off. Easter should 
symbolize to us a daily Resurrection, a resurrection from 
sin, that is constantly at work in our own lives to-day. 

— K.G.P. 

Sunday, May 22nd. The Rev. Canon Sawers preached 
in Chapel. 

"As many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are 
the Sons of God" (Romans 8: 14) was the text of Canon 
Sawyer's sermon, which he illustrated by stories of the 
lives of men who were led by the spirit of God: Francis 
Xavier, a brilliant 16th. century scholar: C. T. Studd, a 
great cricketer; and David Livingstone. They became 
"God's adventurers" and went into the little known interiors 
of India, China and Africa, where they lived and died 
serving God. Lastly Canon Sawers spoke of a man who 
did great things in a different way — Bishop Brent, an Old 
Boy of T.C.S. who, as Bishop of the Phillipines and later 
of Western New York exerted a widespread influence for 
good. "The greatest living American" he was called at 
one time. 

The sermon ended with a plea to us to realize the 
tremendous task we have to face in this ever-changing 
world and the need, if we are to overcome the difficulties 
before us, of a great awareness of God and a sense of His 
wisdom at all times.

Hockey and Basketball Supper 

The hockey and basketball supper, (rather than just 
"hockey supper"), was held on April 5th in the Hall. In 
company with these teams and the captains and vice- 
captains of the other School Hockey Teams, was the School 
Squash Team, which performed nobly throughout its sea- 
son. The speeches of the captains and coaches were 
sprinkled with such phrases as "Artificial Ice", "Covered 
Rink anyway", and "Bigger Ice Surface". These tell of 
an unfortunate condition that is well illustrated by the al- 
most bewilderment of the team at the Maple Leaf Gardens. 

After a certain amount of back-chat between the 
hockey and basketball factions, the season just past was 
voted to have been a comparatively successful one in all 
branches of sport. 

Cadet Corps Praised by Minister of Defence 

The School's Cadet Corps recently was paid a compli- 
ment, as gratifying as it was unprecedented, by receiving 
mention in the House of Commons. The Minister of 
National Defence, Mr. Ian Mackenzie, was speaking on 
cadet service estimates of his Department, and is reported 
in the Official Debates of the House (Monday, May 16th., 
1938, p. 3142) as saying: 

"I quite agree with my hon. friend as to the valuable 
services performed in connection with the cadet move- 
ment, and that applies not only to the land cadets and the 
sea cadets but to the splendid services of the air cadets 
whom we have at Port Hope, and it is hoped that the air 
cadet service will be extended in the near future." 



Great enthusiasm for tennis has developed, especially 
among members of Middleside. The tennis squad has been 
rolling the grass courts for several weeks, and now has 
three ready for use. 

The Jellett Court 

Thanks to the generosity of Mr. R. P. Jellett, we are 
to have at last a hard, fast-drying tennis court. This is 
now under construction and will be finished before this 
appears in print. This court has been appropriately 
named the "Jellett" Court. 

The Twenty-fourth 

The School celebrated the "24th" with the traditional 
"whole". Lunches were given out in the morning, and, 
wandering off into the country in groups, we dispersed for 
the day. 

In the evening, fireworks were set off behind Bethune 
House. And anyone who turned his back on the majority 
was generally startled into facing the crowd again by 
having a squib go off behind him. 

Founder's Day 

The Seventy-third birthday of the School, falling on a 
Sunday, was this year celebrated on the Saturday. Late 
breakfast and no school! Why doesn't Founder's Day 
come on a Sunday always? 

Cadet Church Parade 

On May 8th, the Sunday following the Inspection, the 
Cadet Corps paraded to St. John's Church, resplendent in 
uniform and the white gloves which made such a difference 
to this year's inspection. 



Cricket has taken its place once more as the School 
sport, and in spite of unfavourable weather, the teams 
have been turning out daily for practice. There seems to 
be more enthusiasm this year among the School's "general 

The outstanding game to the time of writing was the 
Junior School match with Ridley Lower School, which the 
J. S. won so decisively, even spectacularly. The Senior 
School offers its congratulations to the J. S. 

Tajik by Dr. Maynard 

"Fight" was the keyword of an informal talk to the 
Senior boys by Dr. Jack Maynard, on the practice of 
medicine as a career. Owing to the increased applications 
it has been necessary to tighten requirements in the medical 
courses at the Universities, and Dr. Maynard said he could 
not emphasize too strongly the absolute necessity of obtain- 
ing honours at matriculation. 

Money should be no object in such a career, but it 
rather requires a desire to give your all, and to be pre- 
pared to study all your life. Once on the road in medicine, 
there should be no turning back, — it must be "stick" all 
the way. 

Dr. Maynard enumerated three things a doctor must 
have — tact, tolerance and patience, and closed by driving 
his previous points home. May we thank him for an almost 
spellbinding talk, which should prove an inspiration to all 
of us. — C.O.L. 

Air Force Lecture 

The first in a series of lectures, authorized by the De- 
partment of National Defence, on Elementary Aeronautics, 
was given to the senior forms on Tuesday, April 5th by 
Squadron Leader Hume, of Trenton. 


In this lecture, entitled "The Theory of Flight", 
Squadron Leader Hume dealt with such complex subjects, 
to us, as Measuring air-speed. Streamlining, Drag, and the 
evolution of the wing to reduce drag. May we take this 
opportunity of thanking Squadron Leader Hume for an 
extremely clear and amusing talk. 

— J.A.W. 

Visit of Professor Mackenzie 

"University Life" was the subject of a talk by Pro- 
fessor M. A. Mackenzie on Wednesday evening. May 25th. 
Dr. Mackenzie spoke informally to a number of boys in the 
Lodge. He stressed the need of hard, conscientious work, 
saying that only as much as you put into your college life 
would you get out of it. He favours an Arts course taken 
before any of the professional courses, not because it 
trains a man to earn a living, but because it enlarges his 
outlook on life, stimulates his brain, and trains him to 
think and reason for himself. 

Visit to the Royal Ontario Museum 

The School visited the Royal Ontario Museum in 
Toronto on March 30th. At about 8.45 a.m., we departed 
on a special train for the city. Although we have become 
more or less hardened to travelling by train, the novelty of 
a special could not be denied, and it was with a somewhat 

executive air that we rode non-stop to Toronto. But 

more was to come in the private streetcars. A milling, 
incoherent mob of boys was bound to attract attention, but 
the charge of the Light Brigade was placid compared to 
our frenzied rush for seats in the cars. The trip to the 
Museum from the station was full of surprises (mostly 
physical), and it was with a very deep sigh of relief that 
we literally fell from the street cars at the end of our 


The Museum proved immensely interesting, even to 
those who had visited it before. Every second person on 
viewing the huge totem pole, was bound to ask, "How in 
the dickens did they get that in here"? We had it ex- 
plained to us several times, but were still not sure whether 
they built the building around it, or put it together like a 
jig-saw puzzle. 

The geology exhibit probably held the most interest 
for us, and the working model of an oil well was made to 
perform an innumerable number of times. Everyone of 
course wanted to see the mummies and we must confess at 
times we felt a weird sensation on viewing relics so old, 
almost as old as time. 

Most of us, having taken Ancient History in class at 
one time or another, were inclined to consider this subject 
a trifle dull, but we have to thank those who conducted us 
for making it both amusing and enthralling. 

After a somewhat hectic lunch, we were shown moving 
pictures of wild life, and further tours were made by the 
different groups into which we were divided. Some 
viewed the mediaeval armour, others the world-famous 
Chinese collection. 

The company disbanded about half-past three in the 
afternoon, some making a rapid trip home, others amusing 
themselves we know not where in Toronto. The train 
brought us back to School in time for supper, with every- 
one feeling very, very tired. 

— C.O.L. 

Sound Movies at School 

On Wednesday, April 6th. we were privileged to see 
a show of sound movies "suitable for School use" present- 
ed by Mr. Ironside. The main feature was "The Plough 
that Broke the Plain" — a graphic portrayal of the way in 
which unscientific farming and greed had turned the once 
rich plain of the Middle West to barren, wind-swept deserts. 


This feature was preceded by a number of amusing and 
interesting reels, depicting everything from animal life in 
Hollywood to a clown on the stage. 

— J.A.W. 

Public Speaking: First Session 

The first speaker, Mclvor max. delivered a very in- 
teresting talk on lumbering, enumerating the various 
processes which the logs went through, both before and 
after reaching the mill. Jukes gave a very picturesque 
description of a trip in an open boat which, after passing 
through many storms, reached the finest port in the world, 
so he tells us, — ^Vancouver. 

Patch's heartrending account of the arduous duties of 
a school librarian, and Hobbs' description of the gradual 
destruction of his motorcycle vied with each other for 
vividness, while Taylor ma. practically destroyed all 
semblance of order with a short speech, from which we 
managed to glean the fact that a mink devours ten fish a 

Turcot max. brought the evening to a close with a 
eulogy on Montreal, "Canada's greatest and largest metro-

The Prefects' Room 

The mothers of the Prefects have most kindly given 
a fund to the School for the refurnishing of the Prefects' 
study. So far a most handsome extending oak table, a 
reading lamp and a desk lamp, a carpet and some cushions 
have been provided, and the room has been made much 
more comfortable and attractive. Not only the present 
Prefects, but many future Prefects will be lastingly grate- 
ful for this kind and thoughtful act on the part of the 
mothers of the Prefects of 1937-1938. 

Hard' Tennis Court 

All the tennis lovers in the School, and that includes 
a large majority of all the boys in the School, not to 
mention the masters, have been most thrilled for the past 
week to see the construction of our first hard tennis court. 
This has been made possible by the generosity of Mr. R. 
P. Jellett, who for many years has given the tennis prize 
to the winner of the annual tournament. 

The court is to be of the modern colas material, 
complete in every detail, finished with red slate flakes and 
surrounded by a chain link fence. It is being placed be- 
tween the Senior and Junior Schools, just north of the 
rinks, and there is room to the East for three or four more 
courts in line with the present one. Words cannot ex- 
press the depth of our appreciation for this magnificent 
gift to the School; our hope is that Mr. Jellett may be 
able to visit us often and see how much pleasure the court 
is giving to the many tennis enthusiasts. 

The Library 

Mr. C. S. Maclnnes has made a donation of $100 to the 
Library in the hope that this will be the beginning of a 
fund from which the interest may be used to provide new 



books. We are most grateful to Dr. Maclnnes for his 
continued generous assistance to the School, and we trust 
that other friends will come forward to help us build up the 
endowment fund which Dr. Maclnnes has so thoughtfully 
begun. Nearly all our books were destroyed in the fire,

The ominous storm clouds of the previous few days 
broke up to give us another really fine Saturday for the 
Cadet Corps Inspection, on May 7th. 

Before an appreciative crowd of friends and relatives, 
the Wing went through the ceremonial drill without a 
hitch. Air Commodore G. M. Croil, senior officer of the 
active R.C.A.F., took the salute. He was accompanied on 
the inspection by Brigadier-General Hertzberg, Colonel S. 
A. Lee, Squadron Leaders Curtis and Hume, and Flight 
Lieutenants Russel and Ross. 

Squadron drill followed, and while the three squadron 
leaders were putting their respective commands through 
the drill a flight of planes from Trenton executed a num- 
ber of intricate manoeuvres and performed startling 
aerobatics over the parade ground. 

Squadron No. 3 was judged the best in the drill — 
congratulations to "No. 3" and Squadron Leader P. M. 

After lunch in the Hall and coffee at the Lodge, the 
visitors were directed to the "Gym", where for two hours 
they witnessed a varied programme of gymnastics, includ- 
ing brain stimulating games and club swinging by Junior 
School teams, and the usual horizontal bar, parallel bars 
and vaulting horse work by the seniors. A very interest- 
ing feature was a roller skating display by the juniors. The 
climax of the show came when seventy boys went through 
a series of maze marching and "P.T." exercises. The 
gymnasium filled with white-clad figures moving as one, in 
perfect rhythm, was a sight to impress most. 

At the conclusion of the display. Air Commodore Croil 
spoke a few words. He praised the high efficiency of the 
corps, stressing the fact that the very smart drill was the 
more difficult to achieve in that it was carried out on grass 
and not on a hard parade ground, and expressed his great 
satisfaction at having been able to inspect the only Cadet 



Corps as yet affiliated with the Air Force in Canada. Others 

would no doubt follow, but the T.C.S. Corps would always 

have the first place in the interest of his branch of the

Shakespeare was selected this year in contrast to the 
modern comedies of recent School dramatic performances. 
"Twelfth Night" was presented in the Gymnasium on 
Saturday evening, April 2nd. Thanks to the able direction 
of Mr. Wilson and the willing co-operation of the cast, the 
performance was a considerable success. 

Among the leading roles were those of Viola (played 
by Gardiner), Sir Andrew Aguecheek (Hayes), Malvolio 
(Langmuir), and Sir Toby Belch (Harvey). Special com- 
mendation is due to Warburton and L. J. Holton, who 
assumed important parts at short notice. 

The audience will not soon forget the comedy scenes. 
The highlight of humour was certainly the sudden appear- 
ance of Langmuir as Malvolio, nightcap on head, taper in 
hand, at an "upper story window" to scold his mistress' 
offending uncle. Many scenes were played to perfection 
by Hayes, notably the fencing episode. Harvey did well 
with the burly humour of Sir Toby. 

The stage, arranged to Hancock's design, was attrac- 
tive and unusual, being modelled after the original Eliza- 
bethan stage. Most of the action took place on a project- 
ing platform, with no curtain and very little scenery. It 
was unfortunate that the peculiar acoustics of the gym. 
did not fit this type of stage as well as the "picture" 
proscenium settings, so that at times the dialogue was hard 
to hear. E. Taylor and Warburton overcame this difficulty 
more successfully than the others, their scenes together 
being excellent for clear elocution. 


The costumes were almost all made by Miss Smith, 
who deserves the warmest thanks for her work; they were 
colorful, truly Elizabethan in appearance, and very effective 
on the stage. 

Incidental music was provided by Mr. Cohu and the 
Junior School choir, and their contribution to the show 
was an essential factor in its effect. 

The audience was a large one; in addition to the boys 
and many parents and friends, the girls from Hatfield Hall 
and a contingent from the Port Hope High School were 

On the whole, the play was successful, and the many 
hours spent on it by Mr. Wilson and the cast were well

With a final flourish, the artist applied the last touch, 
and threw down his brush. His canvas was finished, his 
last canvas. He wiped the brushes and put them in the 
palette box. He folded his easel and stool, strapped them 
together, and set out for home. 

At least, he called it home, and it had been home to 
him for the past ten years. Herman Weiss during those 
years had been li\ang the life of a hermit, high in the 
Bavarian Alps of Austria. In ten years, he had forgotten 
politics, local news, and even at times he forgot to eat. The 
townsfolk said he was mad. Ah yes! but they hadn't seen 
any of his work. For ten years he had been drawing and 
painting, in the process of developing his new theory of oil- 
painting. And now, March the thirteenth, nineteen hundred 
and thirty-eight, by God's grace and his own labour, 
Herman Weiss was ready to show Austria, and the world, 
what he had accomplished. 

It rained that night, and Herman sat at home by the 
fire. He brought out all his paintings and sketches, and 
spent the evening looking them over. About eleven o'clock 
he put a kettle on the fire to make himself some coffee. 

It began raining harder, and presently there was a 
knock at the door. He went to open it. There were 
several uniformed police, or perhaps they were soldiers. He 


bade them come in out of the rain. They accepted and 

The leader stepped towards the fire, and was relieved 
of his greatcoat by one of the officers. He was a short, 
middle-aged man, with a trim black moustache. He 
mentioned something about being on his way to Vienna. 
Herman was thinking to himself that it was a queer night 
to travel so far. 

Suddenly the leader noticed the paintings arranged 
about the room. He was fascinated by one in particular. 
It was a view of the Alps at sunset. The rugged landscape 
was accentuated by a final burst of colour before twilight. 

"Marvellous, marvellous!" he murmured. "Something 
that I was never able to achieve." 

At once they became friends. Herman was pleased 
with the leader's attitude towards his work. They had 
a cup of coffee together and talked. But soon the rain 
died down and the leader had to leave. He promised he 
would return again. 

Just as he was leaving, the leader turned quickly and 
asked Herman if he were an Aryan or a Jew. Herman 
replied "Jew", of course. The group of officers looked at 
each other, and the party went out into the night. 

Next day, Herman went down to the village to buy 
some groceries. On the way home, someone shot him from 
the roadside. He died. 

What happened to his pictures? Oh, they were burnt, 
of course. All except one. It was a view of the Alps at

The bully had gone one step too far. He had broken 
treaties and usurped his neighbour's territory. Hearts and 
minds had been stirred against hini. There had been meet- 
ings, riots, marshallings. The press told horrible stories 
of his brutality. The perpetrator must be punished. Law 
and order must be kept in the relationships of countries 
and peoples, as well as between individuals. The code of 
honour and right had been violated. Then came the 
declaration of war. 

Crowds lined the streets and wildly acclaimed the neat, 
disciplined squadrons of youth, as they marched past in 
final review. Sweethearts flushed with pride, and mothers 
perhaps v/ept a little, but were proud to give a son for 
their country. The bands played "John Brown's Body" and 
the people sang, beating time with their little flags and 
thrilling to the rhythmic rumble of drums and the blare 
of bugles, waving their hands to departing brothers and 

Among this madly enthusiastic throng stood a sad- 
faced young man. He was not cheering. He held no 
flag. He stared as if in a dream at the multitude of 
glistening bayonets. What pathos lay in this pageant for 
him! What misery and anguish! They seemed happy 
now, but what bitter disillusionment was awaiting them. 
Many of those men would never return. Some would come 
back to their wives maimed and helpless. He was not 
afraid of dying, bullets did not frighten him. They were 
going over there to kill their fellow beings He shud- 
dered and turned away. 

John had been very successful at Oxford. He had won 
his blue for rowing, passed his medical examinations with 
high honours, and made many friends. He started his 
own practice with immediate results and became engaged 
to a charming young girl. The world was open to him. 


There were no financial worries and before him lay a long 
and distinguished career. 

Slowly he walked away from the noisy spectacle and 
became lost in meditation. There was a great motive 
behind this war. They were going to right a wrong. But 
for him there was a different ideal, a religion. He saw the 
realist side, the stark horror of war. It could produce 
fine examples of self-sacrifice, but far more that was sel- 
fish. The false patriotism stirred by the press made no 
impression on him, for he had lifted the idea of nationality 
on to an altogether higher plane. He had tried to explain 
his feelings to his father, who had not understood. His 
father had fought in the last war, but John had borne his 
scorn with spirit. Then he had been called a coward and 
had left his home. He had not gone back. 

His friends had fallen away. Most of them were 
fighting, or on their way to the trenches. They did not 
understand him. They had purposely avoided him and he 
found himself alone in the world. Even Margaret had 
broken the engagement. It was then that John had many 
misgivings. But in the face of misery he strove after his 
ideal. He wondered what would happen after the war. 
Would he still be treated in this way? Once he had thought 
of committing suicide, but had decided against the easy 
way out. He would show them all that he was right and 
they were wrong. 

John passed into a sordid quarter of the city. All 
around him, children were marching up and down, waging 
their mimic warfare. As he passed, a little girl asked 
him where he had left his gun. He thought of all his 
years of study, of his ambition to help those who were 
suffering. But they wanted him to go to the front with 
a sword in his hand! .... His eyes filled with tears. 

Quietly he climbed the stairs to his tiny garret of 
exile, and, throwing himself into a chair, buried his sad 
face in his hands.

The Post Office of the httle village of Eagle Rock is a 
frame building badly in need of repairs and paint. It sits 
on the side of the hill like a large soap box with a porch 
in front, supported by six rotten posts driven into the 
ground some twenty years ago. 

One June day the sun was beating the surrounding 
country with scorching rays. The heat seemed to rise in 
banks from the hot stones and dusty road. The Model 
"T" Ford in front of the porch was almost red hot, and 
every now and again some part would click, giving ample 
proof of the great heat. 

The Postmaster was sitting in an ancient armchair, 
with a glass of water resting on one arm and his battered 
old hat on the other. He was wearing a pair of dirty, 
patched pants and an old, greasy looking, blue shirt, that 
stuck to his body with sweat. The flies were keeping up 
a steady hum and every once in a while a slap and a half- 
hearted curse came from the man. 

Suddenly a woman's shrill voice came from the inner- 
most recesses of the rickety establishment: "Pa, go get 
some apples from Jake Stewart's store, and don't stay and 
gossip." Pa got up, stretched and yawned, nearly fell 
down the protesting steps, and laid a careless hand on the 
door of the car. 

At once the air was rent by a roar of wrath and pain 
and the man came reeling up the steps again. 

"Sorry Ma, the car's too hot." 

The man sank back into his dilapidated chair, with a 
sigh of contentment. The flies continued their humming, 
the man continued his slapping, life went on as usual in 
Eagle Rock.

It was wild and stormy on the fateful night. That 
was why they had chosen it for their enterprise. Few 
people would be abroad. In fact, they encountered no- 
body in the lashing rain as they walked up the alley behind 
the First Farmers' Bank at Ettawaba. Silently and 
efficiently the pair went to work on the high window. A 
little while later the bars and glass were removed. They 
clambered in and went straight to the large vault. With 
the combination they had obtained, they started to work 
on it. 

Two hours later the pair tossed their loot into the 
back seat of a car parked three blocks from the bank. 
They prepared to start. Suddenly a whistle pierced the 
noise of the storm. Somebody had discovered the window! 
The car swung out from the curb and started to speed 
along the empty street. As they passed a black car going 
slowly along the street, a siren sounded. 

"A patrol car!" gasped the driver. "They're on the 
lookout for us." 

The chase was on. The two cars roared through the 
glistening streets of the city. Gradually the car in front 
drew away. By the time they had reached the old shore 
road and started up the bluff towards the dam, the patrol 
car was behind by half a mile. Suddenly the pursuing 
lights stopped. Something was wrong with the police 
car. The thieves kept on and drew up before the dam 
with a screeching of brakes. 

The bulk of the dam loomed large. It was a weighty 
structure. Millions of tons of water were held in check 
by its vastness of cement: enough water to flood the whole 
valley below, enough water to ruin thousands of homes 
and lives. Perhaps there was even enough water to reach 
the city. 

These considerations were not in the driver's mind, 
however, as he leapt from the car. He knew that if the 


water were released everybody's attention would be 
occupied. Nobody would have time to look for two mere 
bank-robbers. The thought pressed him on. He ran up 
the long cement runway to the top of the dam. His 
younger companion followed him dazedly. At the top, the 
older man entered the control-house. He knew the place 
well. Swiftly he pulled the lever which opened the first 
of the ten causeways. Then he stepped towards the 
second lever. 

"Stop! Stop!" screamed the younger man, all at once 
aware of his companion's purpose. "You'll flood the 
valley! I'm going to ring the warning bell!" 

Quickly he turned and ran towards the centre of the 
dam. The older man pursued him in the rain. If he 
rang the bell, the emergency dam would be shut and there 
would be no flood. The younger man reached the bell and 
was just about to pull the rope when the older man caught 
him. They struggled ferociously, locked in each other's 
arms. Eventually the younger man triumphed. His 
companion lay motionless on the ground. He rang the 
bell loud and long. 

In the furore which ensued, the young man escaped. 
He had killed his companion and saved the valley, but when 
the body was found, an entirely different construction was 
put on the matter. Obviously the person found dead had 
caught somebody trying to open the dam gates. He had 
rung the warning bell and been killed for it. 

That had been ten years before. Now, John Pellet, 
Governor of the State, stood by the veiled monument with 
the rope in his hand. He had "gone straight" ever since 
the night on the dam, and had risen to prominence in 
politics. The monument he was about to unveil was 
erected to the man who had been found dead on the dam, 
the man who had saved the valley. They had never been 
able to identify him. 



The canvas covering fell slowly from the white stone 
monument. The gold letters: "To an Unknown Hero" 
stood out in the sun. 

For a moment a sarcastic, cynical smile flitted across 
the face of John Pellet, Governor of the State.

The local constabulary snored. It was one of those 
hot mid-September afternoons during which none but the 
insects could possibly work. Besides, it was Sunday. How- 
ever, for P. C. Roberts the day of rest was very like any 
other day. He never failed to take his afternoon nap. 
Now he sprawled on an antiquated deck-chair in the corner 
of his garden, under the shade of a hazel tree. Horses 
in a meadow nearby stood swishing their tails. Cows lay 
sleepily on the long dry grass by a duck-pond. Even the 
birds refused to sing, and the old sow in her sty was too 
lazy to poke about for food. All Littleton Pannell slept . . . 

His was a pleasant little cottage, not a stone's throw 
from the highway that led up the hill from Market Laving- 
ton over the plain to Old Sarum. Against a low white 
fence, that separated the garden from the road, leant a 
brand new bicycle, the bell and other silver parts glistening 
in the sunlight. It was his joy and pride. When he rode 
it through the village, everyone stopped to watch him go 
by. He had saved a long time for this luxury. It had a 
three-speed gear, a magnificent lamp, hooter, and specially 
cushioned saddle. If he left it at the curb, small boys 
would gather around and stare with mouths agape. They 
did not dare touch it. They had a most respectful dread 
of the massive keeper of the law. Instead of the noisy 
motorbike of the city policeman, the speed and blow of a 
siren, he preferred this slow, silent, and sedate vehicle. 
He had seen breathtaking pictures at the local cinema in 
which police patrols tore around on those newfangled 
contraptions, and had decided they were not for him. 

Besides, there was no necessity. The requirements of 
his office were small. Once the village had been over- 
awed by a murder, but that was before his time. His 
father used to tell him about the terrible affair. When he 
was young, he had looked forward to solving one of those 
tragic mysteries that he read so much about in the "Weekly 


Mail". But with the passage of years ambition had 
grown less. He had become a member of the municipal 
board, president of the Welfare Society of Littleton Pannell 
and was highly respected in the neighbourhood. Some- 
times the occasional chicken was stolen, or baby lost. But 
these were usually false alarms and most of the credit for 
the solution went to him. 

He found it rather difficult to make out what the new 
Hore Belisha signs were for. Thirty miles an hour was 
the new speed limit through the village, but who would ever 
dream of driving that fast through a built-up area ? Once 
he himself had been at forty-five, but that was in a train. 
He had gone as a boy to visit his uncle, who was in the 
London force. He had not enjoyed the journey. The 
train frightened him and London enclosed him, overpowered 
him. What was more, it had made him think, and he did 
not like to think too much. The country was for him. 

Twenty years ago he had married a farmer's daughter 
from Somerset. She adored him and he couldn't have 
lived without her. But he was inclined to be lazy and 
often quarrelled with her. She submitted meekly before 
his outbursts, never losing her temper with him. She loved 
him too much for that. He often saw her now as a bent 
old woman, fat and rather red in the face. But when he 
was tired, when a meeting of the town council had not gone 
as it should, she was always ready to console him. It 
was then that he saw the pretty country girl of his court- 
ing, the kind little woman that sympathized, and under- 
stood him so well. How wrong they all were, and how right 
he was! Sometimes he was very unkind to her, and never 
stopped to consider what he could do without her. He did 
not read much and had no philosophy, so that he didn't 
realize how well she knew his little idiosyncrasies. Perhaps 
this was why he could be so cruel. But he was always 
sorry in the end though he was usually too much of a 
coward to admit his fault. 


They had a young boy, Willie. He was going to make 
a fine policeman. They sent him to the Grammar School 
at Market Lavington. Already he was learning to write 
and the father longed for the day when he would be able 
to dictate letters to his boy. What an impression it would 
make in the locality! Such were the father's hopes in his 

A wasp settled on the large red nose of P. C. Roberts 
and began to explore. Then it became enmeshed in a 
massive moustache and promptly stung that worthy gentle- 
man on the cheek. The local constabulary bellowed, and 
called for his wife.

He looked like a speck on the uppermost girder of the 
high steel skeleton which towered above the surrounding 
buildings, the little figure traversing the fortieth storey of 
a sky-scraper framework rising sheer into the blue. 

To this workman picking his way along the narrow 
girder, the cars on the street below looked like sluggish 
ants. Between him and the distant street there was nothing 
but the girder and a thousand feet of space. 

At the sound of an aeroplane above his head, he 
stopped and looked upward. The plane performed a roar- 
ing loop. 

"Choo," said the workman, jumping lightly over a 
yard of infinity on to another girder, "those aviator guys 
sure have nerve!"

Dear Mr. Editor, 

It has somewhat however occurred by me on several 
in fact occasions to writing you a short letter not very 
long. In among all my friends who are aquaintances of 
mine here in Poland my native-land where I am born they 
are regarding me as genius scholar. Especially they are 


regarding me as regards English language. From by a 
friend of mine I have being sent an English grammar who 
lives in Canada. Also I constantly have a life-long descrip- 
tion to the Record magazine. English language appeals 
by me especially on the whole of the so many adverbs and 
adjectives. One can have the ability to impress one so 
more clear and precision in English language. Perhaps 
quite often I am thinking frequently Dear Mr. Editor of 
the Record could like a grammar genius as with me to 
writing a subscription about what I am gathering im- 
pression of T.C.S. school and Record magazine. 

Firstly I could like speaking at first about sports 
game they are calling rugby. It seems at first glancing 
that rugby is very interested sports game. For to recon- 
struction what sports game rugby is resembling I have 
purchased and buyed a pigskin from a pig. Because Record 
magazine saying "he kicked the pigskin" have therefore 
thus tried to kicking pigskin so. This is very uninterested 
to me. Boys of T.C.S. kind must been childish like children 
in their mind for enjoying sports game as with this. 

Will be with you once more again another time when 
I am have too much vodka for drinking. 

Yours true,

For their first game of the season the School played a 
strong Old Boys team captained by Bill Seagram. 

The Old Boys batted first and were all out for 96, of 
which Bill Seagram made 21 and Eric Cochran 16. 

Peacock's bowling was definitely "on" and he took six 
wickets for only 20 runs. The School batting, except for 
a slump in the middle, was excellent, Irwin max. hitting up 
21 and Hayes 14 not out.

The First Team's fielding went to pieces on the Toronto 
Cricket Club ground, which was very fast compared to the 
School's. Missing Peacock and Curtis, we were only able 
to hold the Cricket Club down to 188 for 6. Croft got 90 
of these and Bell 35, Mood, Finley and Hayes taking the 
wickets for the School.

hard right and left, was too much for Moore. 


Feather-weight Langdon beat Crawford 

Langdon's left kept Crawford on the defensive 

throughout the fight. 

Light-weight Mclvor ma. beat Rougvie 

Mclvor won this bout because of a sharp right that

This was a slugging duel, with Thomson coming out on 

top because of a superior left. 

Middle-weight Black w.o. McAvity max. 

In the final, McAvity was unable to box because of an 

injury to his hand. 


Bantam-weight Cartwright ma. beat Best

Feather-weight Beatty max. beat Gripton 

Beatty pushed Gripton about the ring with his body 
blows and won easily.

A very close fight, with both boys getting in some 
hard blows. Hyndman, though pressed, slightly outpoint- 
ed LeBrooy. 
Welter-weight Flock beat Pearson 

One of the best bouts of the competition. Both showed 
good style and revelled in the heavy going. Flock's guard

Middle-weight Irwin max. beat Martin 

Irwin's ability to break through Martin's guard gave 
him the victory against his bigger opponent.

Peacock's longer reach and good style kept him ahead 

throughout the fight. 


The Bradburn Cup was awarded by the judges to 
Irwin max., the Rous Cup to Hart ma. — J.p.t. 



This year's Sports Day will be remembered as the 
first for many years on which it was not necessary to have 
boys holding the hurdles against a strong, cold wind! 

The Sports were held on May 18, and, with the ex- 
cellent weather, many good times and distances were made. 
The twenty-five events that were run off on the final day 
were preceded by the new boy trials the day before. 

Two new records were set in the shot put. In the 
senior, Irwin max. broke a tv/enty-nine-year old record 
with a toss of 38 feet 5 inches; and in the intermediate, 
Beairsto won with a distance of 35 feet 7 inches. 

There were some very close races, with both the inter- 
mediate 220 and the junior 220 ending in dead heats. Irwin 
max. and Thomson max. also tied for first position in the 
senior high jump. 

Swinton won the senior aggregate with 18 points, but 
Thomson max. and Irwin max. were close behind with 12 
points each. Kirkpatrick ma. obtained the greatest num- 
ber of points of the meet in winning the intermediate sec- 
tion with 23 points. Duggan ma. defeated Rogers for 
junior honours by 18 points to 7.

March 28th., 1938. 

From the first round this year's squash tournament 
was keenly contested. Squash at T.C.S. this year has 
definitely been on the uptrend, and many thanks are due 
to Mr. Lewis, who gave his time to coach the team, and 
help all who were interested in the game. 

Landry throughout the tournament showed his usual 
fine temperament and consistency, and advanced to the 
finals where he was opposed by Irwin max. Landry won 
3-0, but the games were very close, running to 14-14 with 
Landry winning the first game 3-1 on deuce, the second 
15-3, the third 14-14, Landry again winning the match and 
tournament 3-2 on deuce. 

R.M.C. vs. T.C.S. 
April 24th., 1938. 

A team of six cadets invaded T.C.S. to contest the last 
match of the T.C.S. squash schedule. It proved to be the 
most closely fought battle of the year, T.C.S. winning by 
one game only. The matches were to be counted, but as 
the teams were tied nine all, total games decided the 
verdict, and T.C.S. emerged on the strong side of a 27-26 

For the School Landry and Beatty max. played ex- 
tremely well, each winning their three matches. Landry 
especially showed remarkably fine form in defeating Magee, 
No. 1 of the R.M.C. team, 3-0 in the best match of the meet.

The Origin of Mock Turtle Soup 

(With Apologies to Charles Lamb) 

Many thrilling tales have been told of shipwrecks, and 
men being marooned on islands. Usually no good is attained 
by these, but there is one legend that runs something as 

The good ship "Marie Queen", after battling a severe 
south sea hurricane, foundered at last. All aboard perished 
but seven men and seven pigs. 

The men were soon compelled to eat their pigs, as 
there was no vegetation on this isle of volcanic rock. When 
the pigs went, the men were beginning to starve, but 
fortunately Fate was to let them live longer. An iron 
pot tied to a log, and also a box of vegetables, drifted 
ashore. A fire was soon started from drift wood and 
water obtained from a nearby spring. But after two weeks 
of soup, the vegetables got scarce and there weren't enough 
to go round. 

Their plight became pitiful and each man tried to be 
brave and give his portion to the others. Besides, the 
soup wasn't so tasty, either. Some bright soul suggested 
a shark, but there were no sharks. Finally, another saw 
a school of tuna fish, but there were neither hooks nor 

A hardy man known as Bill, the ship's cook, gave a 
mighty yell as the smooth pile of rocks on which he was 


sitting moved. A tiny head, then flippers, appeared. 
Simultaneously the men leaped for it when another yelled 
"Food! We eat!" 

Poor Turtle, he was crushed to death by the combined 
efforts of his antagonists. He was cut up, and parts of 
him put in the soup. 

The fire burned, the soup boiled, the men's mouths 
watered. Finally the barrel-chested chef. Bill, took off 
the new stew and the men tasted it as soon as it was cool. 
Finding it very satisfying, they all went at each others' 
throats in order to gain possession of the pot. Knives are 
dangerous and the result v/as six dead men, one survivor, 
and an upturned pot. 

Our Turtle friend had found revenge although he was 

Things were looking pretty black for Bill, but he was 
an intelligent fellow. He had to get away from this rock, 
so after tossing his late friends into the sea, he filled the 
iron pot with clear water and set sail in the turtle shell. 
As he departed, he thought he heard a low, continuous and 
monotonous laugh, but looking back he saw that it was 
only breakers. They seemed to mock him for setting out 
on such a fruitless task; but he must, at all costs, notify 
civilization of this new-found delicacy. 

All legends go the same, the good old rescue ship came 
along and picked him up. He is now the very wealthy 
owner of a large restaurant and canning concern, making 
soup he called Mock Turtle, for the waves' benefit. 

Cadet Inspection and Gym Display 

The J. S. boys, with a number of their parents and 
friends, viewed the cadet inspection on May the seventh. 
Needless to say, the ceremonial provided many a thrill to 
the younger lads. In the afternoon the J. S. boys took 


part in the gym display. The weatherman was kind this 
year and the whole exhibition v/e feel was indeed an 
excellent one. 

Visit to Museum 

On Wednesday, March 30, the Junior School joined 
with the Senior School and journeyed to the Royal Ontario 
Museum. The visit proved to be most enjoyable and in- 
structive, and our fears of over-fatigue were dissolved by 
the use of small stools carried from one gallery to the next. 
The day will long be remembered by the boys who had the 
good fortune to go.

Cricket has got off to a good start, in that the en- 
thusiasm has been unbounded and the weather, while some- 
times cool, has been otherwise most favourable. The 
School has been divided into three groups — Bigside, Middle- 
side and Littleside. At the time of writing the first XI 
have won their first two games, and the second XI have 
lost their first two matches. The scores of these games 
were as follows:

The Ladies' Guild have with their usual generosity 
given to the Junior School a set of sixty steel lockers for 
the changing- room. These lockers will fill a long felt want 
and we are indeed most grateful to the Ladies' Guild for 
their gifts. 

Mrs. Mackenzie Waters has also very generously 
donated a number of books to the J. S. Library. 


The School has attended the following movies this 
term: A Yank at Oxford; The Girl of the Golden West. 

The annual Junior School picnic is planned for Thurs- 
day, June 2nd. 

On Sunday, May 22nd., Mr. and Mrs. F. H. Briden very 
kindly entertained Form IIA at a picnic near Osaka. 

The J. S. tennis court has been put into shape rather 
earlier than usual this term and is a very popular place 
when cricket is not in progress.

It may perhaps be of interest to Old Boys who have 
not visited some of their school-day haunts for several 
years to note from the accompanying photographs certain 
changes that have taken place there. 

All T.C.S. boys will doubtless recall the old power- 
house and dam. Picture No. 1 shows how in the past 
fifteen or twenty years this has been allowed to fall into 
disrepair. With the letting out of the dam, Corbett's pond 
is no more. A sluggish Ganeraska now winds its way 
through a flat and fertile area overgrown with tall grass 
and willow trees, where once the pond lay. Picture No. 2 
looks up-stream from the abutment of the old dam, and 
picture No. 3 is taken from the "Cannon Ball" tracks to 
the north. Both pictures show the present condition of 
what used to be a popular skating-pond in winter. 

The effect on the old swimming hole at the "Iron 
Bridge" of the letting out of Corbett's dam can be observed 
in picture No. 4. The drop in the water-level is very 
noticeable in the protruding piles at the left beneath the 
bridge, and in the bank beyond the bridge, which was once 
fairly flush with the water-level. The current, too, is quite 
marked. One would not soberly contemplate diving off the 
bridge to-day. 


Incidentally, a photograph of the present indoor, tiled, 
swimming-pool, if placed beside the picture of the "Iron 
Bridge", would form an eloquent commentary on the 
change that the School has undergone during a relatively 
brief space of time. 

Picture No. 5 shows another scene familiar to suc- 
cessive generations of Old Boys, the butts at the mouth of 
Gage's Creek — another swimming spot. This has not 
suffered such great change, though the butts themselves 
are crumbling. The picture looks out on the Lake and, 
fortunately for the readers of the Record, does not carry 
the odour present in the atmosphere. This arises from 
literally thousands of small dead fish which Lake Ontario, 
owing to some submarine epidemic, has lately cast up upon 
her shores. 

The last scene, picture No. 6, will be easOy recognized; 
it looks down the old "Tuck Road" toward the Lake, and 
is taken from the comer at the foot of the School hill. Here 
is the scene of many a start and finish of the Oxford Cup 
race. Less heroic perhaps, the walk beneath the trees on 
the left suggests, to the generation prior to 1920, Miss 
Philp's pie and cream. The white fence of the old "Tuck" 
can be made out as a speck down the road before the rail- 
road tracks. It was once a well trodden track, though 
now little trace of a path remains. Does there linger at 
the cross-roads the ghost of some one-time new boy giving 
the "low sign" to a line of recumbent figures "dragging" 
in the ditch? Many trees and shrubs have been removed 
from the comer since those days, making it now too ex- 
posed. Besides, who of the present generation of T.C.S. 
boys would choose to walk so far to enjoy the weed, when 
comfortable smoking-rooms have been equipped within the 
School building, where he may enjoy his after-dinner pipe

A very congenial atmosphere prevailed at the London 
Hunt and Country Club on the evening of May 20th, as a 
small group of Old Boys gathered together to inaugurate 
successfully a London Branch of the Association. 

Although not more than about fifteen Old Boys live in 
London itself, some fifty or sixty reside in Western Ontario, 
west of a line drawn from Port Dover through Paris and 
Waterloo and across to Goderich. Much of the credit for 
organizing these Old Boys into a Branch so expeditiously 
goes to our enterprising Colin Brown, who appears nearly to 
have recovered from the effects of receiving a cricket ball 
on the head, bowled by Jules Mickle in 1930. Another 
Old Boy who helped to organize the affair is Tony 
DuMoulin; he has made a recovery from a more recent, 
serious illness but looked as though nothing were very 
much wrong with him to-day. 

H. F. Labatt was chairman of proceedings, and spoke 
of how much the Old Boys could do to assist the School 
in a quiet way. S. S. DuMoulin, President of the O.B.A., 
in his remarks, gave some interesting and amusing remin- 
iscences of the School in the 1890's. During the interval 
since, we have apparently progressed far in certain mat- 
ters, such as sanitation. The Headmaster, responding to 
the toast to the School, spoke at length of its work during 
the past year and of plans for the future. Argue Martin 
and Eric Morse were each called upon and spoke briefly. 

As officers to serve for 1938, the following were 

President: Hugh F. Labatt. 

Vice-Presidents: Tony DuMoulin, Hugh Mackenzie. 

Secretary-Treasurer: Colin Brown. 

Besides those already mentioned, the following were 
also observed as present at the dinner: John Labatt, John 
and Alec Becher, Mac Ferguson, Kenneth Ross, Bob Fisher, 
Alec Graydon, Leonard Carling, Roger Thompson, Harrison 
Corey, Owen Combe, Bill Braden, Dave Ambrose, and John 



It will be welcome news to all Old Boys that a branch 
of the O.B.A. has been formed at Montreal, in which city 
and surrounding district about 225 Old Boys reside. 

Lin Russel has been hard at work for more than a 
year tracing addresses and getting records into shape for 
the branch organization. A Dinner Committee consist- 
ing of Con Harrington, R. P. Jellett, Styx Macaulay, Lin 
Russel and Fred Wigle was recently formed, and a most 
successful branch inauguration dinner was held at the 
Montreal Club, 215 St. James Street, on the night of May 

R. P. Jellett presided, and proposed the toast to the 
School. He spoke in glowing terms of its recent achievements 
and mentioned the unexcelled equipment and location of the 
School. Mr. Ketchum received a warm welcome from the 
gathering. In replying to the toast to the School he mention- 
ed in the course of his remarks that Montreal was the fifth 
Branch of the O.B.A. to be formed, besides the Central 
Association at Port Hope. He spoke of the many out- 
standing Boys that the School had had from Montreal, and 
commended the objects of the newly formed Branch. He 
stressed the advantages of private-school training as pre- 
paration for life in a democratic country. 

Dr. W. W. Francis read out some amusing and interest- 
ing annotations from a School notebook in his possession, 
belonging to Sir William Osier. 

A formal constitution for the Branch was then \m- 
animously adopted, and the following officers elected to 
serve for 1938: 

President: R. P. Jellett. 

Vice-President: N. H. Macaulay. 

Secretary-Treasurer: C. M. Russel. 

Committee: C. F. Harrington, T. C. McConkey, F. S. 
Mathewson, R. B. Mulholland, W. T. Whitehead, F. E. 
Wigle, J. S. Wright. 


At the head table, besides Mr. Ketchum and members 
of the Dinner Committee, were the Very Rev. Dean Arthur 
CarUsle, a member of the Governing Body of the School and 
Eric Morse, general Secretary-Treasurer of the O.B.A.

A letter from the Vice-President of Colas Roads 
Limited says of T. B, Woodyatt, who died in December last: 

While we do not have any complete record of his war service, we 
understand Mr. Woodyatt was awarded the Military Cross and Bar, and 
returned from France with the rank of Captain. 

After spending several years as general superintendent for the Dufferin 
Construction Company and the Rayner Construction Company, he joined 
Colas Roads Limited in the capacity of sales engineer in 1933. Mr. Woodyatt 
was loaned by this company to the Newfoundland Government in the Fall 
of 1936 to act as Resident Engineer in charge of the construction of the 
land plane base in Newfoundland. 

He returned to Canada on sick leave in September, 1937 and passed 
away as a result of high blood pressure at his home in Toronto in 



From the press notice, we reprint the following account 
of the life of Alexis Martin, who died recently: 

Mr. Martin was born at Ballynahinch, Hamilton, Ontario, in 1871, a 
son of the late Edward Martin, K.C. Destined to follow the family 
tradition and embrace the law as a career, Mr. Martin was educated at 
Trinity College School, Port Hope, and later at Trinity College and Osgoode 
Hall, Toronto. In 1898 he came to Victoria and started to practice law, 
and during his 40 years here had conducted many notable cases in the 
various courts. 

In his younger days Mr. Martin was a fine athlete, known throughout 
Canada for his prowess at cricket, rugby, tennis and hockey. While at 
Trinity he was captain of the rugby team and in 1896 was captain of the 
Osgoode Hall rugby team which came very near to winning the Canadian 
championship. He was also a member of the AllCanadian cricket team 
in the annual fixture against the Gentlemen of Philadelphia, and for many 
years after coming to Victoria played for the Victoria Cricket Club and 
retained his enthusiasm for rugby. 

In addition to his many other interests, Mr. Martin served in the 
militia, both with the Grenadiers in Toronto and later with the 5th Regiment 
here. He attended the coronation of King Edward VII as a member of 
the militia. 

Of late years he found relaxation in his garden, being a great lover of 
flowers. He was also a notable bridge player. 

A lifelong Liberal, Mr. Martin gave generously of his time and talents 
in the interests of Liberalism in this province. 

He is survived by his widow and one daughter. Miss Mary Martin, 
at the family residence, and one son, R. K. C. (Tim) Martin in Montreal; 
three sisters, Mrs. Lawrence Baldwin (Toronto), Mrs. Philip Du Moulin 
(Vancouver) and Mrs. A. P. Luxton (Victoria), and three brothers, Kirwan 
and D'Arcy Martin, in Hamilton, and Chief Justice Archer Martin in

When we recall with what bravado we were wont to 
speak of Speech Day, and the time when we would be 
leaving the School, it is with very mixed feelings that we 
write this last editorial of the year. After leaning on the 
School, so to speak, for the last few years, it is going to be 
somewhat of a novelty, for many, to try the experiment of 
standing on their own feet. 

It is scarcely for us to advise those leaving what they 
must do and look out for in life, for in the first place we 
are not qualified to do so, and then, every other person 
has something to say about it, and it doubtless becomes a 
little tedious. 

Tradition is perhaps a bugbear to schoolboys, but it 
is nevertheless one of the controlling factors in the 
supremacy of our Empire. Once a year at least it is 
brought before us as something not to be lost sight of, 
something to cherish and maintain. Let us then uphold 
the traditions of the School as we preserve our own family 


name, and throughout life treat them in the same way. To 
those leaving such a school as this, it must always be 
the finest of its kind in the world. If those who are now 
leaving have put all they had into what they did, 
regardless of success or failure, they will feel that way 
about the School. And only in this manner can anything 
more than a book education be gained from boarding- 
school life. 

So now we say no more than good-bye and good luck!

Sunday, June 5th. Speaking to the School, and 
especially to those who were leaving at the end of the year, 
the Headmaster emphasised three characteristics necessary 
to the individual if he is to make the best of his life in the 
world: enthusiasm, ambition, and an understanding of his 
fellow men. It is necessary to have principles, by which to 
steer one's course. Ideals, and forgetting oneself in his keen- 
ness, keeps one forever pushing forward, prevents drifting 
into the backwash of humanity, which is so often fatal to 
mankind. And finally, understanding enables one to get 
on with the people of the world. The Headmaster stressed 
the great good that would result if every individual and 
every nation made an attempt to understand "the other 
fellow", and took time to think about life, and the purpose 
of it.

Sunday, June 12th. Trinity Sunday. The preacher 
at the Memorial Service was the Very Rev. C. E. Riley, 
Dean of Toronto. 

The text of the sermon was the passage in n Timothy 
in which St. Paul, imprisoned and condemned, speaks his 
satisfaction at having "fought the good fight". That was 
what had been done, too, by those Old Boys of the School 
whose memory we now honoured. Our own duty is to 


fight the good fight, not necessarily for our country, as 
did these men, but for Christianity. 

During the service were sung the special hymns "O 
Valiant Hearts" and "I vow to Thee, my Country". 

At the end of the Chapel Service, the School followed 
the Choir in procession to the Memorial Cross. Here the 
Choir sang the School Hymn, "Blest are the pure in 
heart"; the Headmaster read the names of the Old Boys 
commemorated on the Cross; Mrs. Britton Osier placed the 
wreath; and the service ended with the Benediction, and 
the sounding of the Last Post and Reveille by the trum- 
peters of the Cadet Corps.

Speech Day 

The Chapel was filled at eleven o'clock when the 
Speech Day service began, a short service afterwards de- 
scribed by Mr, Jellett as "most moving and beautiful in its 
simplicity". The hymns included the School Hymn "Blest 
are the pure in heart"; "And now with thanksgiving"; 
Blake's "Jerusalem": and a new hymn "Our Father, God". 
The lesson was taken from Ecclesiasticus ; "Let us now 
praise famous men". 

After service, everyone went to the Gymnasium, and 
it was estimated that there were over five hundred people 
present when Mr. R. P. Jellett opened the proceedings. 

In a brief speech, Mr. Jellett expressed his affection 
for what to him is always the School of schools, and his 
conviction that it is a school of which all Canada can be 

The Headmaster then read his report, which will be 
found in full below. 

The Speaker of the day, the President of Toronto Uni- 
versity, began with a little ecclesiastical history. The 
founder of our school, said Dr. Cody, was given to con- 
troversy and comment on public affairs from his pulpit 
when he was assistant minister at St. Paul's, Yorkville. So 
much so that complaints were made to Bishop Strachan, 
who gave it as his opinion that "local and geographical 
references should be sparingly used in sermons, and never 
by assistant ministers." To enforce his opinion, the good 
Bishop removed Mr. Johnson to Weston, where he discover- 
ed a new occupation in founding this school. 

Dr. Cody went on to speak of the importance to a 
school of inspiring leadership by its headmaster and the 
support of his teaching staff. He quoted Ian Hay's famous 
dedication of his book. The Lighter Side of School Life, 
to members of the worst paid and the most richly reward- 
ed profession in the world, and suggested to the boys that 
they should remember the value of that reward to the men 


concerned and express their thanks to them before they 

To the boys Dr. Cody gave valuable advice. He 
spoke of the great parts that could be played in a life by 
good friendships, the love of good reading and self- 
discipline, all of which could be better found at school than 
anywhere else. He urged the value of intellectual discipline 
and pleaded that studies, while they could not take first 
place in every boy's life, should not be despised by any. 
The school, he said, gave them the gift of health and bodily 
training, and above all that religious training which Vv^as 
so essential to their future life and v/ork. They must 
develop their sense of duty as citizens in a great country 
and try to be of service. It was necessary. Dr. Cody 
concluded, for anyone who wanted to make the best of his 
life always to choose the higher and harder way, remember- 
ing the inspiration of the motto on the Winchester war 
memorial; The Cause Shall Not Fail. 

The prizes were then distributed, beginning with the 
Junior School. Athletic trophies were followed by scholastic 
rewards, and from time to time others were called on to 
relieve the President in his task. The Provost of Trinity, 
Dr. Maynard, Bishop Renison, Mr. Jellett, Mr. F. G. Osier, 
Mr. G. B. Strathy, and the Rev. J. Scott Howard, who 
gave to the cricket captain the bat and cup presented by 
himself, all distributed various groups of prizes. 

Mrs. Britton Osier was called upon to give the Bronze 
Medal to George Renison, who was then rushed down the 
corridor by the cheering school en masse. 

The singing of the School Song and a verse of the 
National Anthem ended the Prize Distribution. A buffet 
lunch, with the traditional strawberry shortcake, was 
served in the Hall and in the Junior School. 



Mr. Chairman, Mr. President, Ladies and Gentlemen, 

May I welcome you all most sincerely to our seventy- 
third Speech Day. At this time of year prize days of one 
description or another seem to burst out in almost as 
great profusion as the foliage on the trees, and I hope they 
are as indicative of running sap beneath the surface. I 
have heard it said that an optimist is a father who expects 
his sons and daughters to do so badly in their school work 
that his wife will not want him to attend their closings; 
I hope all such fathers have faUed to achieve their 

It is a great honour to have Dr. Cody with us to-day. 
Few men have occupied with so much distinction such a 
triad of responsible posts; first as rector of the largest 
church in Toronto, then as Minister of Education, and now 
for some years President of the University of Toronto, he 
has devoted himself to his exceptionally heavy tasks with 
an indefatigable energy which seems to increase with the 
years, and his influence has extended throughout this 
Dominion. We are most grateful to him for giving us so 
many hours from his busy life. 

Education in this country suffered a grievous loss 
this year in the death of Dr. Mackenzie of Lakefield. For 
forty-four years he had been head of that sister school, 
and before that he had been a master at T.C.S. There has 
always been a close relationship between Lakefield and 
T.C.S. and to most of us Lakefield meant Dr. Mackenzie. 
We shall never forget him, for his influence on those with 
whom he came in contact was a lasting one. To his son 
who succeeds him and who has been so well prepared for 
his task in the true Lakefield tradition, we v/ish every 
happiness and success. 

This year has been the first for many years in which 
we have been free from a very heavy bank debt, and our 
gratitude to our generous benefactors will not diminish 
with the passing of time. Just a little over ten years ago 


the Senior School was gutted by fire; had it not been for 
the ready response of our Old Boys and friends at that 
time it would have been impossible to carry on: but they 
came willingly to our assistance, and now we find our- 
selves possessed of a most completely equipped school, 
mellowing after eight years of use, which altogether has 
cost more than a million and a quarter dollars, nearly a 
million of which has been given to us by our most generous 
friends. Surely such liberality must reflect a real belief 
in the value of the part a school like this can play in the 
life of the country. Yet those very benefactors would be 
the first to agree with me that bricks and mortar, fine 
classrooms and swimming pools, mean little unless there is 
a right spirit permeating the people who use them. Too 
much stress cannot be laid on the importance of personal 
influence, especially on those who are not yet fully mature, 
and unless a school like this generates a spirit of true 
aristocracy, or rule by the best, in a framework of demo- 
cracy, then I do not believe it is fulfilling its proper 
function, or is worthy of the faith reposed in it. 

There are those who sometimes betray the idea that a 
boarding school is a type of reformatory, and there are 
others who feel that by reason of the time a boy has spent 
in a boarding school he is automatically raised a rung in the 
ladder of social distinctions; both conceptions are utterly 
false. A boarding school is not primarily a corrective institu- 
tion ; it is first and foremost a school which tries to draw out 
new life and guide it along fruitful paths. As boys and 
masters live more or less cheek by jowl for nearly nine 
months out of the year, it is only right that a selective 
process should be in operation, just as anyone would choose 
most carefully a companion for himself or his son if he 
were to live with him so closely. This cannot be called 
snobbery, but an intelligent appreciation of the immense 
value of truly good companionship. It is our sincere 
desire that members of this School so conduct themselves 
from day to day that consciously or unconsciously they are

exerting a good influence on themselves and their fellows. 
We all have our backslidings, but if the habit for funda- 
mental decency, manliness, honesty of purpose, is once 
formed, it will rise above all waverings. Without wishing 
to sound in any way self-satisfied, or boastful, I believe I 
can say with truth that we have a very fine type of man- 
hood in the School; the great majority of the boys have 
shown very clearly that they are conscious of their almost 
unexcelled heritage and opportunities and have done their 
best to be worthy of them, thus creating, in both Junior 
and Senior Schools an atmosphere of harmony and happi- 

For five years we have been trying to instil habits of 
self-discipline and willing co-operation, with the objective 
of developing a true spirit of democracy, and this year 
those characteristics have been more evident than before. 
Credit for this must go in large measure to the influence 
of the Prefects and Senior boys, who have played their 
part unselfishly and have left a fine record of service to 
the best traditions of the School. I am deeply grateful 
to them. 

The health of the School has been exceptionally good 
for another year, and our thanks are due to Dr. Vivian 
and Miss Fick for their constant care. 

School work has progressed steadily, though some 
times perhaps a little feverishly because of the three weeks 
we lost in the autumn. We have had more sets this year 
than ever before, enabling most boys to undertake work 
of a standard suited to their capabilities in a particular 
subject, irrespective of the form they are placed in; some 
periods have been doubled in length to an hour and a half, 
in an attempt to reduce the piecemeal nature of the day's 
time table, and the innovation seems to have had some good 
results. Our record in examinations last year was most 
satisfactory, with a very low percentage of papers failed 
and a high percentage of honours. We cannot always 
expect the same standard of results, for the personal 


equation enters into the problem of examinations more 
than perhaps anything else. I sometimes think the boys 
in a school can be compared to the automobiles in a car 
park; they arrive from many different places and countries 
and stay next each other for a time, some four cylinder, 
some six, some eight and some even twelve cylinder 
engines; some bodies beautifully streamlined, painted in 
the latest colours, but if you look under the hood you may 
find the engine is knocking on all eight; some have very 
poor brakes, in some the starting system does not work 
consistently, the batteries need re-charging; others are 
overpowered and shake the bodies to pieces; the steering 
gear is faulty in some; there is a poor grade of gasoline in 
others, causing constant trouble; some have weak springs 
and crash about, jerking the framework; some get over- 
heated and need a new cooling system. And there are al- 
ways a few that are not perhaps so prepossessing, but try 
them out and you will find there is really good stuff in them 
and they will stand up. Occasionally the performance 
measures up to all expectations and the schoolmaster's 
dream comes true. All these cars can be made to run 
satisfactorily, but we cannot expect them all to be perfect 

The master mechanics in the School have given much 
individual attention to all the problems they have been 
faced with, and I hope they will find that the mechanism 
runs well on the testing ground. 

Many of our Old Boys have brought honour to the 
School for their achievements in 1937; you will see a list 
of some of them on the last page of your programmes; 
may I especially mention Peter O'Brian, the first Canadian 
to win the Sword of Honour at the Royal Air Force College, 
Scott Medd who is rapidly making a name for himself in 
London as a coming artist, and may I congratulate 
Humphrey Bonnycastle, who has just lately been appointed 
Headmaster of Rothesay Collegiate School, and wish him 
every success in his new work. 


The winners of the Entrance Memorial Scholarships 
this year were J. R. LeMesurier of Westmount, P.Q., who 
won the Sir William Osier Scholarship of the value of 
$500.00 a year for four years, K. T. N. Lapp of Toronto 
and M. D. Greene of the Pas, Manitoba, who tied for the 
Dr. Oswald Rigby Scholarship of the same value; P. B. 
Heaton of Toronto who won the Old Boys' Scholarship No. 
1 for entrance to the Junior School, of the value of $400.00 
a year for two years, and J. D. Sharp of Winnipeg who 
won the Old Boys' Scholarship No. 2 for entrance to the 
Junior School of the value of $200.00 a year for two 

LeMesurier is a brother of a present boy who holds the 
Dyce Saunders Memorial Scholarship, and Heaton is the 
son of an Old Boy, so we feel we have a special interest 
in them. 

We have continued our efforts in those many other 
sides of school life which are not formally examined on 
paper at the end of the year, but which are most important 
as a means of developing a balanced and fully rounded 
personality. The Debating in our miniature House of 
Commons in the Hall has been of a high standard; the 
dramatic work concerned more boys than ever before, and 
several of the productions were most creditable ; the editors 
of the School magazine, The Record, have produced five 
exceedingly good numbers; the Choir has worked faith- 
fully and undertaken more ambitious music than formerly 
with much well merited success; wood working and Art in 
all their forms have been flourishing, and some surprising- 
ly good work has been turned out. There is an exhibition 
of some of the work in the corridors and in the Carnegie 
Room just at the head of the stairs, and I hope you will 
take a moment to glance at it. For the first time one of 
our boys, D. H. Armstrong, won the Canadian Junior 
Gymnastic Championship; all our teams have played in a 
spirit of good sportsmanship and have had real enjoyment 
from it, which is more important than always winning. 


though we have had our share of victories; in shooting, 
Wills has won a King's Silver Medal for making a possible 
score, 100 out of 100, in the Imperial Challenge Shoot, and 
another boy, Lambert, has won a bronze medal for scoring 
99 out of 100. Our present boys and Old Boys have kept 
up our Squash record, and this year Old Boys hold the 
three provincial championships in Squash, and the Domin- 
ion Championship. Another Old Boy, Marshall Cleland, 
was adjudged the outstanding sports competitor of 1937. 
Our Cadet Corps has won additional praise, and was 
referred to by the Minister of National Defence in the 
House of Commons as "those splendid air cadets at Port 

During the year new branches of the Old Boys' As- 
sociation have been formed in Montreal, Hamilton, and 
London, which with the previous branches in Toronto and 
Vancouver and the central office at Port Hope, bring the 
number of our local associations to six, a very good 
beginning in extending the association throughout the 
Dominion. Our Old Boys are our representatives to the 
world at large and we are indeed glad that they feel the 
School is worthy of their continued interest. 

We have been the fortunate recipients of many 
valuable gifts during the year. Mr. Norman Seagram 
gave us an electric wave organ for the Chapel, which has 
been the means of bringing the music back to the standard 
people came to expect in the days of the old Chapel; The 
Ladies' Guild refurnished a classroom for the Carnegie 
collection of works of art, and I hope you will look at this 
room, now known as the Carnegie Room; they have also 
made many other generous and thoughtful contributions; 
the Port Hope branch of the GuOd have continued to 
beautify the triangle at the approach to the School; the 
mothers of the Prefects re-furnished the Prefects' study; 
Mr. C. S. Maclnnes contributed very generously to the work 
of the library; Mr. R. C. Matthews gave us a three lane 
set of cricket nets for batting practice; Mr. Blair Russel 


is putting the billiard table in first class condition and 
having a new floor laid; Mr. C. A. Hill gave us a fine new- 
lathe for the workshop; Miss Cartwright a picture for the 
Chapel; and just lately we have all been thrilled with the 
addition of a new hard tennis court, given to us by Mr. 
R. P. Jellett. For these and other gifts to the School, 
more appreciated than I can say, may I thank the kind 
donors and express the hope that they will always feel 
that the School is worthy of their generosity, because of 
the proper use made of their gifts. 

Four new members of the staff have done noble work 
for us during the year — Mrs. Davidson in the Junior 
School, Mr. Charles Tottenham in the Junior School, Mr. 
Wilson in the Senior School, and Mr. Hadley Armstrong as 
assistant physical training instructor. To them, and to 
all the members of the Staff, I am most grateful for their 
skilful help and constant attention to duty. 

I thought I would be able to keep this report very 
short, but there is always much to be thought about a 
school year and some of it has to be said. It is extremely 
difficult for me to say farewell to boys with whom one 
has worked for several years, and especially such fine lads 
as are leaving us this year. They could not have led the 
School so well if they had not obtained some benefit from 
the years they have spent here, and for that I am thank- 
ful. Advice about the future is usually fairly easy to 
give, but not always so easy to follow. On another 
occasion I tried to stress the value of keeping one's ideals 
and worthy ambitions fresh in mind; of learning to give 
oneself out wholeheartedly to worthwhile undertakings; 
of trying to understand others; of holding to proven 
principles of conduct; and of drawing apart from time to 
time for rest and meditation. Because of the unrest and 
challenging movements in the world to-day, I believe it is 
also necessary to develop a true patriotism, a loving 
loyalty to the ideals of liberty and justice. It is my earnest 
hope that some of the boys from this School v/ill use the 


talents which they have begun to develop here in the ser- 
vice of their country and fellow men, helping perhaps to 
make Canada such a well governed and harmonious nation 
that her example may be followed in many parts of the 

May I quote again words from the Sanscrit inscribed 
by our first Head Boy, Sir William Osier, in his own book 
entitled "A Way of Life": 

For yesterday is but a dream 

And to-morrow is only a vision 

But to-day well lived makes 

Every yesterday a Dream of Happiness 

And every to-morrow a vision of Hope! 

Look well, therefore, to this Day. 

Remember the motto on our Memorial doors, 
"Bis vivit qui bene" — he who lives well, lives twice. 
May every good fortune be yours.

We are deeply grateful to the Hon. R. C. Matthews 
for the gift of a new three-lane set of nets for cricket 
practice. Nets are so essential a part of cricket, and the 
old equipment was quite inadequate to our needs. The 
new nets have proved of the greatest value. 

Mr. Matthews has also given us three books on 
cricket; one of them is "Cricket across the Sea", written 
by Dyce Saunders about the first Canadian team to tour 
England. The generosity of Mr. Matthews is very much 


The hard tennis court presented by Mr. R. P. Jellett 
was formally opened by Mrs. H. C. Rae and Mrs. Grahame 
Joy, who together cut a ribbon in the School colours that 
held up the net. The Headmaster made a few remarks 
in which he mentioned how he had heard as far back as 
1912 the desire expressed for a hard court; he also noted 
the fact that the two ladies who were to cut the ribbon had 
had no less than forty-one close relatives at the School, 
beginning in 1886 and extending to the present day. 

The first ball was served by Mr. Jellett's son, David, who 
is in the Junior School, and taken by Burton Wessels, our 
youngest J. S. boy. A doubles match was then played by 
two masters and two Senior School tennis enthusiasts. 

Since the opening on June 4th, the court has been 
constantly in use. In fact, it never seems to be unoccupied 
in any daylight hour available for games. That is of 
course the form of thanks that Mr. Jellett will appreciate 
the best. 



Oak shelves have been placed in the Hall, on the west 
walls under the gallery, to hold the challenge cups and 
trophies in possession of the Houses. The cups held by- 
Brent House are on the right as you enter, the Bethune 
House cups on the left. To those whose memories are of 
the old buildings, it may be recalled that Brent House is 
the former Lower Flat, Bethune House the Upper Flat. 


Trumpeters of the band and the School orchestra 
joined with those who took part in this year's play at a 
dinner on June 10th. Mrs. Wright had provided an ex- 
cellent meal, which included chicken patties and straw- 
berry shortcake, with all the trimmings. 

Speeches followed. The Headmaster complimented 
those who had acted or worked for the play ; and Mr. Wilson 
expressed his appreciation of the willing co-operation of 
the cast and crew, speaking also of hopes for next year's 

A large number of brief speeches followed, as the Head- 
master called upon various individuals for comment on 
various aspects of the play from differing view-points. Hayes 
and Langmuir, as principal actors, led off. Russel mi. was 
especially effective in recounting the difficulties of learning 
to walk like a lady. Kirkpatrick max., not an enthusiastic 
orator, attempted to "pass the buck" to del Rio for re- 
marks on the trials of the lighting experts, but to the 
amusement of all, it was discovered that the pinch hitter 
was nowhere to be seen. There may, however, be no 
foundation for the allegation that he was studying some- 

Miss Fick, Miss Smith and Mrs. Wright discovered 
that there are sometimes disadvantages in taking part in 
these festivities, but all proved that public speaking was 
among their unsuspected accomplishments. 


The dinner ended with cheers for Mr, Wilson, to v/hose 
inspiration and unflagging energy all the players and stage- 
hands who spoke paid deserved tribute.

The last, and perhaps most important, debate of the 
year was certainly the shortest for some time. It was held 
on June 14th., for the purpose of selecting the winner of 
the debating prize, which was eventually awarded to War- 
burton and Fleming. The motion — "That there is no place 
in the modem state for the present type of boarding school, 
and these should be replaced by co-educational schools" — 
was upheld by Warburton and Lambert and opposed by 
Fleming and Ross. 

In opening the debate, Warburton stressed the con- 
tacts and the outlook a boy would acquire with the presence 
of girls, mentioning the value of seeing the woman's point 
of view. He also suggested the corresponding desirability 
of a girl being able in later life to judge character and cope 
with men. The mental relaxation found in mingling with 
girls, as well as the physical relaxation obtained in sports, 
helped to complete an education, the speaker claimed in 

Fleming questioned the statement that boys could be 
relied upon in a co-educational institution, alleging that 
they are too headstrong and too desirous of "showing off". 
The presence of girls, he claimed, would only increase com- 
petition, and he condemned the idea of frequent social 
gatherings, saying that the holidays were long enough 
without being prolonged into school life, with consequent 
lowering of academic standards. 

Lambert thought the presence of girls would raise 
standards, by spurring boys to better work both academi- 
cally and athletically, as well as improving the level of 
sportsmanship. So far, co-education had not succeeded 


in Canada, but that was only because the methods were at 
fault, Lambert declared. With the right system, sloppy 
dress and sloppy language would vanish, and boys would 
be turned out better equipped to solve the problems of life. 

Ross pointed out that part of the motion had so far 
been completely ignored; he wished to see private schools 
approved for the sake of the state. Had not most British 
statesmen been the product of English "public schools"? 
Character building was far more evident in boarding 
schools than in high schools; and the foundation of all pro- 
fessions was laid in the private school. If co-education 
were introduced, "sissification" would set in, and the virile 
air of the school would disappear. 

From the floor of the House, Langmuir declared that 
we should not appreciate "the girl" if we had her around 
all the time, and Harstone assured us from earlier ex- 
perience that girls in a school have no effect whatever, and 
that no harm could come of co-education. Renison and 
Tate also spoke. 

After a short recess, a vote v/as taken, and the 
motion declared lost by 27 to 21.

Public Speaking: Second Session 

The first speaker was del Rio, whose topic was Mexico 
and its present rebellion. An interesting fact he mentioned 
was that all his mail to and from that country is just now 
rigidly censored. 

Landry followed with a speech on "The World's Worst 
Train Wrecks". Among these he described two particularly 
bad ones, both of which happened in France. 

The subject chosen by Taylor max. was Madame Curie, 
the discoverer of radium. He told of her life work and 
achievements, for which she will always be remembered. 

The evening's speeches deserve special credit, as they 
were prepared under the handicap of a very busy week, 
terminated by the Old Boys' Reunion. — k.g.p. 


Public Speaking: Final Session 

At the final session of Public Speaking, held in the Hall 
on June 14th, Renison made a most original speech on 
Polo, handling his subject with ease and without the assist- 
ance of notes; Hayes, squeezing time from an extra class, 
spoke most appropriately on types of speakers, imitating 
several easily recognized orators, mostly of the soap box 
variety; his dramatic gestures lent much to the appeal of 
his speech, and considering the impromptu nature of it, he 
did very well indeed.

(Pierre and Marie Curie, striving to isolate radium, hoped the new element 
might turn out to be beautiful) 

One wistful hope through reason's fabric wove 

Emotion's coloured thread, one bright desire 

Gleamed through relentless patience, as they strove 

To find the source of pitchblende's secret fire: 

They wished it beautiful. Their dismal shed 

Gave wretched roof to precious instrument 

And crucible, where draught-blown coal dust spread 

Confusion through their measurings intent. 

In anxious weariness and pain of mind 

They toiled to wrest the truth from stubborn ore; 

And won at last their element, to find 

Beauty no eye had ever seen before: 

Beheld, in test-tubes of strange salts by night, 
Soft stars aglow with radium's new light. 

— D. Kermode Parr.

It was a very still evening. The sun in setting tinged 
the horizon with a deep red colour, the forecast of another 
beautiful day. But to the thousands who lay in the mud 
of their dug-outs it was the bloody ending of yet another 
inglorious episode. They had attacked and had been re- 
pulsed and now there was a silence, the brooding after a 
storm. The endless alternate rest from attack, and the 
waiting for another hopeless tempest. 

Between the opposing trenches lay a wild and dis- 
orderly tract of land, the tangled battlefield of that day's 
encounter. Many inhuman shapes lay in that barbed 
division, the only separation between the forces of death. 

As the evening wore on and dusk began to fall, the 
men in their wretched hovels began to recover from total 
oblivion. Life again began to stir. Some nursed their 
wounds while others attempted to joke with their comrades. 
But what irony lay in their humour! Apart from the rest, 
in a lonely section of the trench, sat a man who had not 
recovered. He stared straight before him, over the bodies 
of the dead, through the tangled wire, into the orbit of the 
sun. It was his first week of service. He had come out 
thinking how grand and noble a soldier looked in uniform ; 
he had not bothered about the rest. To-day he had killed 
a man. Everything seemed to change. He remembered 
every detail of that gruesome encounter. The bayonet as 
it passed through that German's uniform, the scream, and 

A sergeant trudged along the trench and called to him 
to come to supper. He was not heard. With a shrug of 
his shoulders the old soldier returned to his meal. "An- 
other shell-shock", he murmured to himself, "too bad, and 
so young too". 

It was getting dark now and still that figure sat there 
looking up over the wall of the trench into the far beyond. 
Suddenly he stirred. He leaned forward staring harder at 
the wire entanglements a few yards from the trench. Some- 


thing had moved there. Yes, it was a man. They had 
told him it was death to crawl over the edge into that no- 
man's-land. But without another thought he scrambled 
over the ridge towards the wounded sufferer. Someone 
called him back; he listened and smiled to himself. He 
had murdered to-day and now he could redeem himself. 
They said it wasn't murder, but he knew better. 

A rifle cracked and he heard a stone split beside him. 
They were firing now. He reached his comrade and started 
to drag him back. He had nearly reached the trench when 
a dull explosion sounded beside him. Then a sudden flash 
of light, blindness, nothingness 

The sergeant turned to his men and with a light- 
hearted harshness warned them. "That's what happens 
to damn fools", he said.

"Off the Record'' 

The Old Boys' Cricket Match 

We are still a little bit in the dark as to whether this 
match really took place or not, but the fact remains that 
we are supposed to have played in it, so this may be con- 
sidered a veracious account based on inside information. It's 
a pity the day was not suitable for taking pictures, as a 
photographic record of the game would have been a thing 
to go down to posterity, or somewhere. 

With the advent of four or five Old Boys and an equal 
sprinkling of the present, it was decided to begin, and let 
the remainder drift in as they came. The method of 
procedure was interesting. For instance — Bob Bethune to 
Buck Pearce: "You can be captain, Buck, so let's get 
started." (Starts to walk off.) Buck to Bob: "Oh no, 
you'd make a much better one; but here's Lumsden. Hey, 
Lumsden, you're captain of the squad; let's have the tea 
interval now." "Sorry, Buck, I was just telling Harry 
Symons what a peach of a captain he'd make, and he's in 
process of electing Al Campbell, so everything's O.K." 

Aided by somebody's double-headed .... no, perhaps 
that's libel. Anyway, the Old Boys put themselves in first, 
Al Campbell and Buck Pearce leading off. After four 
glorious swings which netted 12 runs, Buck Pearce was 
bowled on the fifth ball by Lithgow. Alan Campbell, who 
had ultimately been elected captain, broke all rules by play- 
ing a straight bat for three balls. The crowd, already in 
a frenzy over the sheer drama of the game, expressed 
vigorous disapproval, so Captain Campbell changed his 
tactics. One roundhouse swing, and Lumsden was in to 
replace him. He and Bob Bethune kept their ends up, as 
they say in the best cricket circles, until somehow, some 
time, one of them was put out; must have been, for we 
know neither retired having made fifty. 


Bobby Cassels kept the gallery in good humour with 
his running between wickets. The pitch being wet and 
slippery, he ran the first four feet and sat the next twenty. 
Nevertheless, Sitting Bull, if we may so call him, managed 
to score 15 runs, though we think most of these were on 
overthrows, or hidden ball plays. 

Next came the third assistant vice-co-captain, Harry 
Symons. He at once established himself as a confirmed 
cricketer by the masterful manner in which he took 
centre, or maybe it was middle-and-leg ; anyway, he took 
something. After a few balls played carefully, to get the 
fielders sleepy, he began to hit out with a cheerful abandon 
which endangered the lives of everyone. His running com- 
pared favourably with Bobby Cassels', and we had a cute 

little slogan concocted: "See Symons slide superbly 


The tail end, of a more recent vintage, composed of 
such luminaries as Dal Russel, Tommy Taylor, Pete Hall, 
and last but not least, John Alden, still had memories of 
cricket and the hitting and running became more con- 
servative. Even the familiar "Can you?" before a run 
echoed over the field, until John Alden ruined the spirit of 
the thing by answering "Can I what?" 

When the Old Boys took the field, they had persuaded 
their three-hold-outs, Bill Seagram, Hec Lithgow and 
Brooks Gossage, to come to terms for a mere $25,000. 
"Though it's robbery", all three affirmed. It was not 
stated who was doing the robbing. 

It was with somewhat weak knees that we went in to 
bat against the bowling of Bill Seagram and the pitching 
of Pete Hall. "Don't worry," the former assured us in 
his well-known squeaky treble, "I'll bowl slowly." After 
five balls of an over, he'd walk back to the umpire and ask : 
"How many balls to come?" Umpire: "One." "How 
many?" "Oh .... one." "Are you sure?" (The Seagram 
eyes take on that steely glint usually found only in detec- 


tive stories.) Umpire: "Well, maybe it's two." "Only 
two? I think it's four .... and so do you!" Umpire: "Oh 
yes, sure, four to come." Net result, about three more 
school wickets fall. 

"Drama in the field" : 1. Bobby Cassels, as he flashes 
past the gallery on his way to the deep field, what time the 
bowler approaches his crease: "I gotta get a head start on 
the ball, or I'll never catch it." Crack . . . and the ball 
hits him in that certain part of the anatomy, and both stop 
dead (the ball and Bobby). "See what I mean?" continues 
the fieldsman, and collapses. So does the gallery. 

"Drama in the field": 2. Lithgow hits a ball for his 
father to chase into the deep field, silently kissing next 
month's allowance good-bye. A spectator, when the bats- 
man presently comes out: "Aren't you ashamed, sending 
your father out into the country like that?" Undutiful 
son: "Well, he's been sending me out here into the country 
for years, hasn't he?" 

Finally the rain came, or the v/ives came, or else the 
School was put out; anyway everyone began to leave and 
the game was over. 

Oh yes, we forgot to mention, the School won.

At Port Hope, May 29th. 

The School XI. batted most of the afternoon in hitting 
up 100 against the Peterborough Cricket Club. Hayes and 
Cayley were high scorers with 17 and 16 respectively. Dyer, 
who bowled 24 overs, took 6 of the School's wickets for 34 
runs. A feature of the School innings was a cheery 9 
compiled by Mr. Stuart, who was invited to join the T.C.S. 
side, and demonstrated very adequately that the age of 
fifteen is not necessarily better for cricket than that of 

Peterborough had to be dismissed in three-quarters of 
an hour, if the School XI. were to achieve a victory. It 
seemed a tall order, but some effective bowling by Hayes, 
well supported by Curtis and Gripton, got the visitors all 
out of the small total of 32 runs. — j.p.t.

At Port Hope, June 4th. 

The first Little Big Four game was lost mainly be- 
cause of the inability of the First XI. to cope with the 
U.C.C. bowling. The School's opening batsmen, Seagram 
and Cayley, played cautiously for several overs, until the 
former was caught out of his crease by Tumbull and was 
stumped. Two of the strongest School batsmen failed to 
stay long at the wickets, Irwin being run out and Peacock 
sending up a short catch to Henderson at square leg. After 
Cayley left, Curtis and Mood established a good partner- 
ship and seemed set for high scores until Curtis misjudged 
one and was bowled by Douglas. After that wickets fell 
in swift succession and the side were all out for the quite 
inadequate score of 80. 

From the beginning of their innings, U.C.C. hit out 
lustily, and several of the batsmen made good scores. Turn- 
bull batted well for his 43; Henderson with 38, Godefroy 
with 23 and Douglas with 31 completed the picture and 
left no doubt as to the result. 


Any possibility of a second innings was destroyed 
when rain began to fall just as the tea interval was taken.

At Aurora, June 8th. 

The School XI. went to Aurora determined to gain a 
decisive victory over S.A.C. to make up for being beaten 
by U.C.C. in their first Little Big Four game. 

Mood won the toss, as he had done in all the preceding

games, and he decided to put S.A.C. in to bat first. The 
St. Andrew's batsmen could do nothing against the bowling 
of Hayes, Finley and Curtis, and they were all out for 22 
runs. Hayes took 5 wickets for 10 runs, Finley 5 for 7; 
Curtis bowled only two overs, both maidens. 

Only one wicket was lost before the S.A.C. total was 
passed. Seagram and Peacock hit up 38 runs between 
them in a bright second wicket partnership. Seagram 
batted very steadily for his 32 runs; Peacock included four 
4's in his 20. Christie and Macrae each took four wickets 
for St. Andrew's. 

In the second innings, S.A.C. played like a different 
team, scoring 109 for 6 v/ickets, but the effort came too 
late. T.C.S. had not many runs to make, but only two 
wickets were down when the time came to draw stumps, 
and the first innings remained the deciding one.

At Toronto, June 11th. 

After hard rain the night before, the wicket at the 
Toronto Cricket Club ground was quite wet when Ridley 
went in to bat before noon. 

The School bowlers had trouble in plenty with the 
early Ridley batsmen and the score of 100 runs went up 
with only four wickets accounted for. The Ridley tail, 
however, notably failed to wag, and the whole side was 
out for 125. Hayes and Finley as usual were the most 


successful bowlers for T.C.S., each taking four wickets; 
and the high point of the School fielding was Peacock's 
remarkable diving catch off Sunderlin's bat. 

The score should have been well within reach of the 
School batsmen, but they seem to have been unable to rise 
to their opportunities this season. Seagram and Cayley 
opened carefully, and stayed together for an hour before 
the latter was bowled by Gibbons, with the score at 16. 
Irwin stayed in with Seagram until 32 was on the board, 
when Seagram was bowled by Ashburner, after presenting 
a solid defence for an hour and a half. As in the Upper 
Canada game, the rest of the batsmen failed to build on 
the foundation laid by the opening two or three, and the 
side was all out for 65. — j.p.t.

Middleside played their first game of the season at 
Port Hope against the Grove. The School batting was 
rather weak and the whole side was dismissed for only 31 
runs. Lithgow played a very useful game when the T.C.S. 
XI. went out to field, as he bowled four men and caught 
two. However, Lakefield managed to make a score of 
104, of which Rose collected 27 before being run out. 

A return match was played at Lakefield. This time 
Middleside did a little better, knocking up 69 runs, of which 
Cartwright ma. contributed 18. Lakefield again did well 
with the bat, their total reaching 103. Morley and Crick- 
more were their leading scorers, and Stewart and Pease 
contributed to Lakefield's success with some very good 


House Match 

A House match was played on June 9th, in which 
Bethune House was victorious by a score of 91 to 41. 

— J.L.G. 


Littleside were not very successful in their first match 
of the season, played against the Grove at Port Hope. 
The School team went in to bat first and made only 24 runs. 
Lakefield had little difficulty in hitting up 73. 

However, the Fifth XI. managed to win the return 
match at Lakefield by the score of 128 for 7 wickets 
against 46. Pochon and Earle made most of the runs for 

Littleside did not lose another match, being well served 
by Somerville's batting and bowling, and by Duggan's bowl- 

The first match against St. Andrew's was won by a 
score of 148 to 48, but in the second game the play was 
much closer, the Fifth XI. making only 51 runs against 
S.A.C.'s 37. 

The last inter-school game was against Upper Canada 
College in Toronto. The Fifth XI. made 75, of which 24 
were from Somerville's bat. U.C.C. were all out for 36, 
Trent being the most successful batsman v/ith 17 runs. 
Godden did very well in the field for U.C.C. taking, four 
wickets and catching a fifth man. 

House Match 

The House teams were very evenly matched, and an 
extremely close and exciting game was played. Brent 
House finally emerged the victors, the score being 57 to 50.

Although the one and only inter-school meet in which 
we took part resulted in defeat, it did show us that, as in 
track, we do possess performers of some ability. The 
team which was sent to St. Andrew's was composed solely 
of boys taking part in no other sport this term but swim- 
ming, and for this reason we might perhaps refer to them 
as a club rather than a team. 

On June 15th a meet v/as held within the School, in 
order to compete for the two trophies so kindly given by 
Mr. A. P. Earle. The senior aggregate was won by Irwin 
max., and the junior by Cayley max. We should like to 
thank Mr, Dixon for doing what he could to further in- 
terest in swimming, and we hope his efforts will be even 
better rewarded next year.

VOL. 41. NO. 6. 

AUGUST, 1938. 



The chief events of this term, apart from the usual 
final examinations and cricket matches, have been picnics. 
It seems to the present writer that there was a picnic for 
some part of the school almost every day during the latter 
part of the term. 

The annual School picnic was at Sylvan Glen on June 
2nd. Although rain came shortly after lunch, the boys' 
ardour did not seem particularly dampened, and they ap- 
peared rather to enjoy the challenge of the elements to 
keep fires going in spite of the moisture. 

Mr. and Mrs. Briden, Mr. and Mrs. Irwin, and Dr. and 
Mrs. Vivian all very kindly entertained members of Form 
IIA to picnics on successive Sundays during the latter part 
of May and the beginning of June. 

Mr. Cohu entertained the Choir and the School officials 
to a picnic at the West Beach on Thursday, June 16th. The 
boys had a dip in the lake and were rather less sunburned 
than usual. 

Speech Day 

Although the events of Speech Day are recorded else- 
where in this number, we should like to mention how 
pleased we were that so many of the parents and friends 
of the Junior School were able to get down for the day. 

Cricket and Choir 

Ordinarily it is our policy not to give special mention 
to any particular group in the School, beyond recording 
their activities and achievements. This time, however, we 
should like to give special mention to the J.S. First Cricket 
Eleven for not only winning all their games but for their 
enthusiasm and co-operation at all times during the season. 

The other group to whom we feel special notice is due 
is the Choir. They gave of their best at all times most 


willingly and cheerfully, and by their excellent work have 
brought much enjoyment to many and have been a credit 
to the School. 

Well done. First XI. and Choir!

The 1938 Annual General Meeting of the O.B.A. took 
place in the School Gymnasium at 3.00 p.m. on June 4th. 
Mr. S. S. DuMoulin, the President, was in the chair. In 
reading his Annual Report he mentioned the three new 
Branches that had been formed at Hamilton, London and 
Montreal during the course of the past year, and he re- 
ported a further increase in the membership of the Associa- 
tion, which now includes nearly four hundred. Among 
other things, the President spoke of the Old Boys' Directory 
shortly to begin to appear, the Business Openings Bureau 
established in conjunction with the Central Office of the 
Association, and an Inter-School Athletic Committee con- 
sisting of three representatives from each of the "Little 
Big Four" Schools, formed, at the suggestion of the Toronto 
Branch, to co-operate with the four Headmasters in con- 
nection with Little Big Four athletics. 

An amendment to the constitution was passed as 
follows : 

THAT Article VIII of the Constitution as amended be 
and the same is hereby repealed and the following sub- 
stituted therefor: 


Article VIII: Fees and Capital Account 

Section I — Fees. 

(a) The Executive Committee will set the fee payable 
to both the Central and Branch associations. 

(b) All fees, whether of annual or life members, shall 
be remitted directly to the Secretary-Treasurer of the 
member's branch association or, in the case of members 
not living in a branch territory, to the Secretary-Treasurer 
of the Central Association. 

(c) The various Secretary-Treasurers shall keep ac- 
count of the fees of both annual and life members residing 
in their respective territories. 

(d) The Secretary-Treasurer of the branch associa- 
tion shall remit to the Secretary-Treasurer of the Central 
Association such proportion of the annual members' fees 
as may be agreed upon by the Executive Committee. 

Section 11 — Capital Fund and Investments. 

All life membership fees shall be paid into the account 
of the Central Association. This account shall be known 
as the capital fund and shall be under the control and 
management of the Executive Committee. The Executive 
Committee may, in their discretion, invest all or any of 
the said fund but any such investment shall be evidenced 
in each case by a formal resolution which shall be sub- 
mitted to the next general meeting of the association follow- 
ing such investment for confirmation. The securities in 
which the said fund of the association may be invested 
shall be restricted to those securities which are authorized 
by law for the investment of funds of life insurance com- 
panies under the laws of the Province of Ontario as set 
out in Section 317 of The Ontario Companies Act. Such 
investments may be made through the agency of any 
broker or brokers who may be selected by the Executive 

The effect of the amendment is simply to place the 
whole of the Capital Fund in the care of the Central 


Association, and to limit its investment by the Central 
Executive Committee to certain types of securities. 

The Meeting at the same time ratified the recent 
purchase by the Committee of two bonds, a $500 
Shawinigan Power at 49c and a $500 Dominion of Canada 
3% bond, out of the Capital Fund. 

The matter of amending the present date set in the 
constitution for the Old Boys' week-end, namely the first 
week-end in June, provoked a good deal of discussion. 
Buck Pearce, speaking for Toronto Old Boys, suggested 
that the King's Birthday, June 9th, would be a much more 
convenient date, as there were many counter-attractions 
on week-ends at this time of year, and Saturday in any 
case did not permit of Toronto Old Boys arriving at the 
School until the afternoon. Lin Russel from Montreal 
voiced the feelings of Old Boys who lived in more distant 
points and stated that it would be practically impossible 
for these Old Boys to get to the School during the middle 
of the week because of lack of time to make the journey 
both ways and be back at work the following day. June 
9th, therefore, would become simply a Toronto gathering. 
He also pointed out that for some of the younger Old Boys 
at least, coming from a distance for just the one day v/as 
more of a financial strain than they could afford. As a 
compromise between these two equally valid considerations 
Mr. Ketchum suggested that possibly it would be better to 
hold the Old Boys' week-end at Thanksgiving, when many 
from Montreal visited the School in any case, and also to 
have June 9th set aside each year for Old Boys' cricket 
matches, at which time a good crowd could be expected 
to come down from Toronto. The suggestion was favour- 
ably received by the meeting, though it was not possible 
to amend the constitution at once, as no notice of amend- 
ment in this respect had been given. It was therefore 
decided to call a general meeting of the Association to be 
held at the School next Thanksgiving, and in the mean-

time to send notice of the proposed amendment to all mem- 
bers of the Association, 

It is hoped that a good number of Old Boys will take 
note of this date, which will be the occasion for an Old Boys' 
gathering at the School. A general meeting will be held 
at that time definitely to decide the question of the date 
of the Annual OJd Boys' Week-end. 

The three Old Boys who have represented the Old 
Boys on the Governing Body of the School during the past 
were re-elected. They are: R. C. H. Cassels, Toronto; 
S. S. DuMoulin, Hamilton; N. H. Macaulay, Montreal. 

The appointment of F. R. Stone as Honorary Auditor 
of the Association was confirmed. 


The first Old Boys' week-end to be held at the School 
since the O.B.A. was re-organized took place June 4-5. Rain 
which threatened in the morning and arrived in the after- 
noon unfortunately discouraged many Toronto and nearby 
Old Boys from attending, and kept numbers low. Neverthe- 
less, nearly sixty were present, representative of most age- 
groups and including two from such distant points as 
Halifax and Virginia. Bob Cassels and W. H. Powell were 
attended by their brides. 

Events began with a pleasant gathering at the Lodge, 
from where everyone proceeded to luncheon in the Hall. 
The Annual Meeting was held in the Gymnasium at 3.00. 

After the meeting most of those present seemed in- 
clined at first to be spectators at the First Team cricket 
match with U.C.C., though an Old Boys match with the 
Second Team was organized by 4 p.m. This proved to be 
a very riotous game, an account of which appears else- 

About half of the Old Boys stayed overnight and en- 
joyed "a quiet week-end in the country" which extended 
until Sunday afternoon. 




Among the Old Boys noticed were : 

W. A. Black, C. R. Osier, J. E. Cutten, C. M. Russel, 
H. L. Symons, S. S. DuMoulin, G. L. Lumsden, G. H. K.
